- Strabismus is the deviation of one or both eyes. Strabismus may be congenital (starting at, or soon after birth) or acquired (even as an adult!).
- Strabismus can be caused by a variety of physiologic conditions most of which are related to neuromuscular conditions (brain control of the eye muscles).
- In children, strabismus may be treated with patching, glasses, surgery, or other treatment regimens.
- In adults, strabismus may be treated with prisms, surgery, or other treatment regimens.
