    To understand how strabismus surgery works, consider that each of your eyes has six outside (extraocular) muscles controlling eye movements.. If a muscle is too strong when you have strabismus, it may cause the eye to turn in, turn out or rotate too high or low.. On the other hand, an eye muscle weakness in certain cases may also cause misalignment.   What is strabismus surgery? Surgery for strabismus, or crossed-eyes, corrects the muscles responsible for eye misalignment by detaching and reattaching them to the outside of the eye, in a more optimal position. Strabismus can be constant or intermittent; it can affect one eye or both, causing them to veer inward, outward, up, or down.

    Strabismus surgery is an outpatient surgery. It lasts for a few hours, and the patient can go home within a few hours after the surgery. It is advisable to get the surgery done at a younger age. The surgical procedure involves the administration of general anesthesia, especially when the surgery is performed on a child. After strabismus surgery, a patient should avoid swimming for a period of at least one week. In some cases, a small dark bump showing the adjustable suture may appear on the white of the eye but dissolves after 6 to 8 weeks.

    Even if the surgery manages to correct the eye turn, that doesn’t mean the patient’s vision is corrected. Without improved functional vision, it’s possible for the strabismus to return – thus the need for repeated surgery. With vision therapy, you address the underlying issue: Improved utilization of vision. Strabismus is a condition in which the eyes do not properly align with each other when looking at an object. The eye that is focused on an object can alternate. The condition may be present occasionally or constantly. If present during a large part of childhood, it may result in amblyopia or loss of depth perception. If onset is during adulthood, it is more likely to result in double vision.
