Eye Muscle Disorders

For Infants, Children, and Adults

Strabismus, which is sometimes referred to a lazy eye, is a visual problem in which the eyes are not aligned properly and point in different directions. Treatment for strabismus works to straighten the eyes and restore binocular (two-eyed) vision

One eye may look straight ahead, while the other eye turns inward, outward, upward, or downward. The eye turn may be consistent, or it may come and go. Which eye is straight (and which is misaligned) may switch or alternate.

In some cases of strabismus, eyeglasses can be prescribed for your child to straighten the eyes. Other treatments may involve surgery to correct the unbalanced eye muscles or to remove a cataract. Patching or blurring the strong eye to improve amblyopia is often necessary.
