Strabismus: - Symptoms, Pathophysiology, Management & Precautions

Dr. Jayantilal Shah [2] | Dr. Shrikant Patel


Abstract: Strabismus, more commonly known across-eyed or wall-eyed, is a vision condition in which a person cannot 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 typically involves a lack of coordination between the extraocular muscles, which prevents directing the gaze of both eyes at once to the same point in space, it thus hampers proper binocular vision, and may affect depth perception adversely. Strabismus is primarily managed by ophthalmologists, optometrists, and orthoptists. Strabismus is present in about 4 % of children. Treatment should be started as early as possible to ensure the development of the best possible visual acuity and stereopsis. Strabismus in children does not go away on its own and strabismus in adults is treatable, so strabismus treatment is necessary.
