Our specialists are experts in diagnosing and treating strabismus, or misaligned eyes, in both children adults.

Pediatric Strabismus

Strabismus can develop at any time during childhood, but it most commonly develops between birth and age five. It's often caused by a problem with the muscles that move the eyes. Untreated, strabismus can impair depth perception. And if one eye becomes dominant, amblyopia, or poor vision, can also occur.

Adult Strabismus

Our physicians also have expertise in diagnosing and treating all causes of adult strabismus. Treatments include prism therapy, Botox injections, and strabismus surgery. We often use an adjustable suture technique that allows us to adjust the muscle position (if needed) after surgery to help provide the best eye alignment and control of double vision.
