Strabismus (Lazy Eye)

Strabismus is a misalignment of the eyes. Strabismus can occur in up to three percent of children. Most adults with strabismus have had this situation since childhood. Adults can also acquire strabismus secondary to illness or injury. Unlike childhood strabismus, adults with strabismus can have diplopia (double vision). Some children can have their strabismus corrected by glasses. Others require surgery to straighten their eyes. Adults can have their strabismus corrected by surgery or Botulinum toxin treatments. Surgery for strabismus is done at the hospital while Botulinum treatments are done in the office.
