Strabismus, also known as cross-eyed or wall-eyed is a vision condition in which a person is not able to align both eyes simultaneously under normal conditions. One or both of the eyes may turn in, out, up, or down. An eye turn may be constant or intermittent. Children that have strabismus will notice that it does not go away on its own.
Up to 5% of all children have some type of strabismus. This is why it is so important for parents to understand the symptoms and know that there are treatment options available. We are proud to work with children that have strabismus, using non-surgical treatment programs that will correct the eye movement and vision-motion deficiencies.
Some of the vision therapy sessions will allow us to assist your child with eye alignment, eye teaming, eye focusing, eye movement, and vision processing.
No two children have the same eyes, and that is why each treatment is tailored to your child’s specific needs. If your child’s symptoms are more extreme in one eye versus the other, we may alter their therapy to ensure the best results possible.
Our friendly and experienced staff are wonderful with children and make their experience visiting us a good one. You are always welcome to ask us any questions before, during, or after therapy. Our number one goal is to help your child.
If you have any questions regarding strabismus or would like to schedule an appointment, contact us today at (440) 230-0923 for our North Royalton location or (440) 230-0923 for our Warrensville Heights location. We look forward to working with your child.
