Strabismus is a visual problem in which the eyes are not aligned properly and point in different directions.  Strabismus is a failure of the two eyes to maintain proper alignment and work together as a team. If you have strabismus, one eye looks directly at the object you are viewing, while the other eye is misaligned inward (“crossed eyes” or “cross-eyed”), outward (“wall-eyed”), upward or downward.

Strabismus can occur due to

  • muscle dysfunction,
  • farsightedness

  • trauma or infections

 Risk factors include
