Strabismus surgery explanation

Strabismus needs early treatment because it is hard to recover misaligned eyes with a perfect result. Children above 6 months are too late for perfect strabismus treatment. Sometimes two or more strabismus procedures within a decade can be more effective.

Strabismus treatments

Strabismus is a physical disorder that has several forms of expression. With one eye moving regularly, the other eye may point in, out, up or down, which are called crossed eyes, exotropia, hypertropia and hypotropia respectively.

Resection and adjustable suture strabismus surgeries

People with strabismus have one eye turning in, out or rotating too high or low. It can be interpreted as certain muscle abnormalities. If one of the six outside muscles that control eye movements is particularly strong or weak, your eye will be misaligned and strabismus occurs. The process that eye muscles control eye movement can be affected by cranial nerve. Nowadays, there are several types of surgeries that can correct strabismus.
