You may have fantasies that make your date night look more like Lady and The Tramp than you may care to admit. And although you may want to slurp spaghetti with your special someone while gazing into each other’s eyes, that eye gazing may turn into something that’s non-existent if you have a condition like strabismus.
Strabismus, or lazy eye, is a condition in which one of your eyes has poor muscle control; causing it to turn the other way or not face completely forward. Even though strabismus is most common among children, it’s still possible for adults to get it.
How Is Adult Strabismus Caused?
Typically, we see adults with strabismus who have untreated strabismus from their childhood or in patients who have recently had a stroke, have a thyroid eye disease or have some sort of brain or eye tumor. However, there are instances, in which we may not be able to identify the exact cause of strabismus.
How Can I Tell If I Have Strabismus?
The best way for us to determine whether or not you have strabismus or if you have another eye disease altogether is to come into our office for a comprehensive eye examination. During your eye exam, one of our ophthalmologists will take a closer look at your eye using a variety of different techniques and tests.
From there, we will either offer you treatment in our office or send you to another specialist for surgery. If you think that you have strabismus, schedule your eye examination with us at our Everett office today and call us at (425) 259-2020.
