Strabismus

Definition: Eye condition where the optical axes can not be directed to the same object, due to contraction or relaxation of one or more muscles of the eyeball. Each eye looks in a different direction, "twists an eye or both" inward, out, up or down. It can be congenital, from the first months of life to 3-4 years. It can also appear in adulthood.

Treatments:
  1. Glasses if needed. Always checking for refractive error (52,54,55)
  2. Occlusion-glued to the healthy eye (if lazy eye).
  3. Surgery to correct eyes (36)
