DO YOUR EYEBALLS POINT IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS? YOU HAVE A CONDITION CALLED STRABISMUS.

Patients with Strabismus are unable to focus correctly, they have to tilt or turn their heads to get proper focus. They can’t make direct eye contact with both eyes as well when looking at people, which can be a cause of inferiority.

SYMPTOMS

Adults with the condition may have one or all of these symptoms:
  • Double vision
  • Eye fatigue
  • Reading problems
  • Loss of perception
  • Pulling sensation around the eyes
  • Blurred images
  • Overlapped images

EXPERT TREATMENT AT CLAYSON WILLIAMS EYE CENTER

Adult strabismus can be treated in different ways, depending on the cause.
Our eye experts at Clayson Williams can provide different types of eye care for your condition like surgery, eye exercises, and other treatments that may help your eyes focus.

STRABISMUS SURGERY

Eye muscle surgery is a conventional treatment for strabismus. Patients who have the condition have eye muscles that are either too weak or too stiff.
Our eye surgeons can loosen, tighten, or reposition eye muscles, so that eye alignment is achieved.

EYE EXERCISES

If your eyes can’t align themselves for reading, eye exercises can help train the eyes to focus inward together.
The exercise helps the brain recognize the affected eye, which restores vision to that eye.
A patch can be placed on the more functional eye so that the less functional eye will work harder.
Treatment can last for weeks or months, with the patch worn a few hours a day.

SPECIAL EYEGLASSES

There are eyeglasses with prisms that can correct double vision for adults. A prism is a wedge-shaped lens that can bend or refract light.
If you have a mild double vision, prism lenses can realign images together so that you can see only one image.

BOTOX INJECTIONS

For adult patients with overactive eye muscles, botox injections may solve the problem.
In small amounts, botox can temporarily paralyze muscles. It can last for several months and may help change eye alignment permanently.

TESTS FOR STRABISMUS

Our eye specialist can do a cover test to diagnose your condition. Your eye will be covered one at a time while you look at an object. We look at how your eye shifts when the cover is moved to determine if you have strabismus.
A flashlight test can also diagnose strabismus. We ask a patient to look at the light, and our eye doctor will check on the reflection on the front surface of your eye.
If your eyes are aligned, the reflection is on the same spot of each eye.

Risk Factors

There are 4 in every 100 adults that have strabismus. A patient can have a brain disorder or one of the muscles that move the eyes.
The majority of adults have lived with the condition since they were young. Strabismus can be acquired due to medical problems like head trauma, diabetes, strokes, brain tumor, thyroid disease, and myasthenia gravis.
In some cases, cataracts or tumors in the eye can cause strabismus. Urgent medical care is needed in these situations.
