Pairs of eyes showing different types of Strabismus condition.

Strabismus, a misalignment of the eyes, is a condition in which the eyes do not fixate as a pair. With Strabismus, one eye can deviate inward, outward or alternate, giving the person a “crossed” look and can frequently lead to Amblyopia or “lazy eye.” Although surgery is sometimes required to help “align” the eyes more closely, it only offers a cosmetic solution and does not result in functional improvement. The brain is what controls eye alignment and, if for some reason it does not fuse the images from the two eyes into one (creating a 3D picture), vision therapy can be used to train the brain to do so. As with many eye conditions, early detection and action will result in the best results.
