Strabismus & Pediatrics
Individual Treatment Plans Address Misaligned Eye Conditions
Strabismus refers to misaligned eyes. If the eyes turn inward (crossed), it is called esotropia. If the eyes turn outward (wall-eyed), it is called exotropia. One eye can be higher than the other, called hypertropia (for the higher eye) or hypotropia (for the lower eye).
Strabismus can be subtle or obvious, intermittent (occurring occasionally) or constant. It can affect one eye only or alternate between the eyes.
Children and adults can develop strabismus. Having the condition at any age requires an individual treatment plan that your ophthalmologist will recommend and an orthoptist will support you with.
