"It is often asked at what age should strabismus treatment no longer be attempted. The answer is, everyone deserves treatment! Age should not be a deterrent..."

What is Strabismus?

Strabismus Definition
Strabismus, more commonly known as cross-eyed or wall-eyed, is a vision condition in which a person can not align both eyes simultaneously under normal conditions. One or both of the eyes may turn in, out, up or down. An eye turn may be constant (when the eye turns all of the time) or intermittent (turning only some of the time). Strabismus in children does not go away on its own and strabismus in adults is treatable, so strabismus treatment is necessary.

See our many articles by experts on Strabismus and Amblyopia, such as:

"Children do not 'outgrow' eye turns! Strabismus treatment is needed!"

Strabismus in Children
It is estimated that up to 5 percent of all children have some type or degree of strabismus. Children with strabismus may initially have double vision. This occurs because of the misalignment of the two eyes in relation to one another. In an attempt to avoid double vision, the brain will eventually disregard the image of one eye (called suppression). Learn What is Strabismus?.
