Eye Doctor in Durham, NC Detects and Treats Strabismus in Children

Either constantly or intermittently, the condition may manifest in the eye appearance. The eyes may be visibly crossed or misaligned (i.e. one is deviated upward, downward, or to the side). Alternatively, the eyes may not move together, or one or both eyes may move to another direction while looking at something—a condition known as “wandering eye”. Older children may also complain of double vision or sensory loss in one eye. If these signs are present in your child, take him/her to an eye doctor in Durham, NC for diagnosis and treatment.

There are various possible causes behind strabismus. The most common is farsightedness or other focusing problems that have been left untreated. Other congenital or genetic diseases like Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, and cataracts; as well as bleeding, tumorous, or nervous disorders may also result in strabismus. These conditions can weaken the eye muscle or the nerve that controls it, and manifest as crossed eyes.
