Eye Muscle Surgery

In some cases in children and adults, strabismus treatment consists of glasses, prisms, patching or blurring of one eye, botulinum toxin injections, or a combination of these treatments. Other times, eye muscle surgery is necessary to straighten the eyes. In children with some types of constant strabismus, early surgery may be recommended to improve the chance of restoring or promoting normal binocular vision. In adults, eye alignment surgery is performed for visual and/or cosmetic reasons.
