Eye misalignment can affect us at any age and cause serious communication and eye health issues. Here, with more information on the causes, symptoms, and treatment of ocular misalignment, Dr. McKee, pediatric ophthalmologist and strabismus specialist.
The causes of eye misalignment are diverse and sometimes unknown. Potential causes include high hyperopia, thyroid eye disease, cataract, eye damage, myasthenia gravis, cranial nerve palsy, and in some patients it may be caused by brain or birth problems. Symptoms of eye misalignment and binocular vision dysfunction include blurred vision, eye strain, eye pain, difficulty driving, motion sickness, headache, double vision and eye strain, especially when you focus on nearby work.
The most common treatments for strabismus are glasses. Wearing glasses can sometimes correct a slight strabismus. Also use a temporary eye patch on the stronger eye if your child has amblyopia. This can make the weak eye stronger, which can help align the eyes. Surgery on the eye muscles may be necessary. Getting an exam is crucial for a correct diagnosis. If you have children, don’t worry, at CEENTA we can diagnose children very easily. We also use toys and lights to help children during an exam. We try to make an exam fun for kids.
