Strabismus

Strabismus refers to a condition in which one or both eyes squint, cross, wander, or turn in. The condition can cause blurred or double vision, and it can also lead to amblyopia, or “lazy eye”.

Treatment

The treatment process may include eye drops, prescription eyeglasses, vision exercises, patching, or surgery.

Infants may appear to have strabismus, but by age four months the eyes should be aligned.

It is important to see your eye doctor in order to determine whether there is true strabismus or not. Sometimes, the condition may be caused by an underlying problem.
