What is Strabismus?

Strabismus can be defined as losing the parallelism between the eyes. There are 6 extraocular muscles in both eyes. The lack or excess force in one or more of these muscle causes to strabismus. While one eye looks straight, the other may cross inward, outward, upward or downward. In some cases, this disorder is available in both eyes. Strabismus may be permanent or temporary according to its cause. There is not only one reason in the formation of strabismus. It may arise from different causes.

Early diagnosis is all important in the treatment of strabismus. When it is late for the eye examination, children may have low vision for life in addition to their aesthetical problems in their eyes. Even if children do not have any eye problem right after birth and in childhood period, they must certainly be examined by a specialist physician.
