Strabismus, more commonly known as cross-eyed or wall-eyed, is a visual disturbance that a person cannot normally align both eyes at the same time. One or both eyes may turn in, out, up or down. Strabismus treatment or strabismus surgery is a type of procedure used to treat this condition, which can cause sight problems as well as self-consciousness for the patient. Strabismus may be congenital and persistent, and some patients may experience strabismus only in stressful situations or disease periods.
Strabismus has several causes and different causes mean different types of treatment for the patients:
● Congenital strabismus – the patient is simply born with eyes which do not align properly. When the infants’ eye develops strabismus, the brain stops paying attention to the visual information from the eye. This can cause severe visual problems; hence, it should be treated at early ages.
● Nervous system issues – the muscles of the eyes are controlled by the nervous system, and in some cases, it may work too little or too much, resulting in misalignment
● Other disorders or tumors – Strabismus can be the sign of serious neurologic disease, including a brain tumor or other tumors which can also influence or restrict the eye’s muscles.
If an adult suddenly gets strabismus, it will lead to double vision, headaches, and eyestrain. Sudden strabismus can also be a sign of a stroke. It is the best option to visit a doctor as soon as possible in all those cases resulting in strabismus.
Strabismus treatment or strabismus surgery is recommended for patients with strabismus. Strabismus usually develops and is diagnosed in infants and young children, most often by age 3. However, older children and adults can also develop the condition. As the condition is relatively noticeable, it is necessary to consult a doctor as soon as it is noticed.
