What is strabismus?

Strabismus is a condition characterized by the misalignment of the eyes, where one or both eyes may look in a direction different from the other. This misalignment may be constant or only appear at certain times.

Causes of Strabismus

Strabismus can be the result of several factors including genetics, problems with the muscles that move the eye, or vision issues that need correction. Sometimes, strabismus may be a symptom of a more serious health condition.

Diagnosis of Strabismus

Early diagnosis is essential for successfully treating strabismus. A comprehensive visual examination includes assessing vision, the balance of the muscles around the eyes, and looking for any signs indicating underlying causes. The ophthalmologist may recommend additional tests to determine the best treatment plan.

Treatment Options

Treatment depends on the type and severity of strabismus and may include:


Prescription glasses or contact lenses: To correct any vision problems.

Eye exercises: To strengthen the muscles and improve coordination between the eyes.

Drops or laser treatments: To reduce the disparity in the strength of the eyes.

Surgery: To adjust the eye muscles and improve their balance.

Tips for Parents

Monitor symptoms: Be aware of any signs of strabismus such as eyes that do not move together, or if you notice your child tilting their head to see things clearly.

Regular check-ups: Ensure your children undergo regular eye examinations, especially if there is a family history of strabismus or other visual problems.

Adhere to treatment: Follow the ophthalmologist’s instructions precisely to ensure the best possible outcomes.
