Strabismus is the most common problem in children in which the eyes do not align with each other when looking at something. About 4% of children under 6 years old are affected by this condition. In this disorder, the eyes, one or both, could be deviated in any direction (up, down, right, left). The likelihood of the existence of more than one of these disorders is high in children. Crossed eyes and squint are other names for this condition.
- There are a dozen types of strabismus. Among them, the intermittent and small-angle strabismus may be improved with vision therapy without surgery.
Generally, if the child is over 6 months old, it is not likely for eyes to be perfectly and completely aligned even with surgery. However, the alignment can be improved.
In general, if a child older than 6 months has strabismus, the eyes are unlikely to be perfectly aligned again. Strabismus surgery can improve alignment significantly.
Your ophthalmologist will try correcting the vision through these methods before suggesting surgery:
•Exercises for the eyes
•Wearing an eye patch alternatively on both eyes or only on one eye (if the patient is suffering from a lazy eye too, this method can help with that as well).
