STRABISMUS (Crossed Eyes)

What is strabismus?

If detected and treated early, crossed-eyes can often be corrected with excellent results.  Strabismus occurs when one or both of your eyes turns in, out, up or down, and is usually caused by poor eye muscle control. This misalignment often first appears before age 21 months but may develop as late as age 6.

Will my child grow out of strabismus?

There is a common misconception that a child will outgrow strabismus. This is not true.  In fact, the condition may get worse without treatment.

How do you treat strabismus?

Treatment for strabismus may include single vision or bifocal eyeglasses, prisms, vision therapy, and in some cases, surgery.  Vision therapy helps align your eyes and solves the underlying cause of strabismus by teaching your two eyes to work together.  

Why is vision therapy needed if surgery straightens the eyes?

Surgery alone may straighten your eyes, but unless your eye muscle control is improved, your eyes may not remain straight.  If detected and treated early, strabismus can often be corrected with excellent results.

"We found Dr. Fife such an excellent doctor that when we lived in Asia we flew back to St. George every year to receive eye care. I was so impressed with the depth of the exams my husband and I received, and the advice on how to maintain good eye health. The supplements he recommended cured my dry eye symptoms. I had suffered from dry eyes for years and thought nothing could be done. We were both very impressed with Dr. Fife and his staff." - Linda R.
