Strabismus is a condition in which the eyes do not properly align with each other when looking at an object. The eye that is focused on an object can alternate. The condition may be present occasionally or constantly. If present during a large part of childhood, it may result in amblyopia or loss of depth perception. If onset is during adulthood, it is more likely to result in double vision.
Strabismus can occur due to muscle dysfunction, hyperopia, problems in the brain, trauma or infection. Risk factors: premature birth, cerebral palsy and a family history of the disease. Types include esotropia, where the eyes intersect "slant eyes" exotropia where eyes get "lazy eye" or "wall eyes", and hyperopia, where they were vertically aligned. They can also be classified as the problem is present in all directions a person looks comitant or incomitant depends on direction. The diagnosis can be made by observing the light reflected from the face, eyes and, considering that it is not centered on the pupil. Another condition that causes similar symptoms, is a disease of the trigeminal nerve.
Treatment depends on the type of strabismus and the main reason. This may include the use of glasses and possibly surgery. Some types of payments since the beginning of operation. Strabismus occurs in approximately 2% of children. The term comes from the Greek strabismos, which means "to squint". Other terms for the condition include "blink" and "cast the eye". "Wall eyes" was used when the eyes turn away from each other.
