Strabismus (Crossed Eyes) Directory

Strabismus, also known as crossed eyes, is characterized by eyes that do not look towards an object together. Eyes may cross, or one may look in another direction. This may occur all the time or only during certain, more stressful times. Crossed eyes may occur in newborns (congenital strabismus) or later in life, which can cause problems with double vision. Therapies and other treatments are often effective in helping those with strabismus. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how strabismus is caused, what it looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
