Adult Strabismus

This information is useful for adults
A person who sees double vision may have strabismus.

People who see second lines of print while they're working at their computer or see a car heading down their lane while they're driving may be suffering from strabisums, says Martha Howard, MD, a surgeon at the Yale Medicine Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus Program. "It can be very frightening,” says Dr. Howard.

Strabismus is a condition in which the eyes are not aligned. It affects people’s ability to function and can even cause them to lose their independence. Fortunately, in many situations, it’s also very treatable. Yale Medicine offers an array of strabismus specialists who have a deep knowledge of conditions, treatment and procedures.
