It all starts with an eye exam!
What is Strabismus?
Strabismus is a condition in which the eyes are out of alignment. An individual with strabismus is sometimes said to have “crossed eyes” or a “lazy eye”.
This condition most-commonly involves children, but adults can also be affected.
In addition to crossed eyes, other Strabismus symptoms include:
- Double vision
- Uncoordinated eye movements
- Eyes that do not aim in the same direction
- Lack of depth perception
- Squinting with one eye
Diagnosis and Treatment
Strabismus is usually diagnosed during a routine but comprehensive eye exam.
Once diagnosed, treatment will vary depending on the severity, type, and cause of the Strabismus. That could include:
- Eyeglasses or contact lenses
- Eye drops
- An eye patch
- Eye muscle training programs
