Adult Strabismus

Adults can benefit from some of the same treatment options that are available to children for treating strabismus (eye misalignment). Treatment options may include prismatic glasses and surgery for visual and/or cosmetic reasons. Most adults with misaligned eyes can have successful surgical correction. Adults may have strabismus either from a residual childhood strabismus or they may acquire strabismus in adulthood. New strabismus that develops in an adult can result from conditions such as thyroid eye disease, stroke or tumors, but often there is no identifiable cause.
