What is Strabismus Surgery?

Eye treatments / Strabismus Surgery

Strabismus is a condition that causes the eyes to look in different directions. Learn how our Pediatric Ophthalmology Center treats eye conditions including strabismus: https://www.childrenscolorado.org/doctors-and-departments/departments/eye/

Strabismus is caused by a lack of coordination between the eyes and they become misaligned as a result. In children, this misalignment can cause the brain to favor one eye over the other. If this continues, the eye that the brain ignores will begin to lose its ability to see. This loss of vision is called amblyopia, and it is frequently associated with strabismus. Fortunately, doctors have developed a surgical technique that can correct strabismus. Watch the video to learn about the different forms of the strabismus and how we treat them.
