What Is Strabismus?

Strabismus, also known as crossed eyes or walled eyes, is a common eye muscle condition that misaligns the eyes and affects how they work together. Strabismus causes one eye to aim improperly.

When you have strabismus, you can expect to experience:

  • Desynchronized eye movement
  • Squinting and tilting your head to see clearly
  • Trouble navigating through spaces
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Eyestrain

Strabismus are relatively common and can happen for a variety of reasons, including:

There are several different classifications of strabismus based on the direction of the eye turn:

  • Esotropia is when the eye turns inward
  • Exotropia is when the eye turns outward
  • Hypertropia is when the eye turns upward
  • Hypotropia is when the eye turns downward

How Can Vision Therapy Help?

It is important to intervene early with a strabismus. There are many exercises we use to help improve visual issues caused by strabismus. And these can help head off the need for more significant intervention such as surgery. If surgery is necessary, therapy can help improve the outcome. Some of these exercises can include:

  • Therapeutic lenses, prisms and filters
  • Computerized vision games and exercises
  • Free space tracking, focusing, and convergence/divergence exercises
  • Exercises that promote improved eye-hand coordination, balance, gaze stability, depth perception, and visual motor integration

Vision therapy is individualized, so we will create a treatment plan to match your specific needs and goals. These exercises aim to help strengthen your visual system and muscle control of your eyes, encouraging the simultaneous use of both eyes.
