If you are seeing double, are cross-eyed, or have a lazy eye, the first step is an in-depth assessment of eye-coordination and binocular vision. Treatment options can include patching, vision therapy and assessment for ocular surgery.
Binocular Vision is your eyes’ ability to work together to see one clear image, and their overlapping fields of vision allows for good depth perception.
Strabismus and Amblyopia: When a person’s eyes do not aim in the same direction, the condition is called ‘strabismus’. Commonly known as ‘crossed eyes’ or ‘wall eyes’, the affected eye may turn constantly or occasionally upward, downward, inward or outward. The ‘eye turn’ may be constant at all distances and times, or only evident at the end of a tiring day, or when a person is sick.
