When treating strabismus and motility, there are options available. The right treatment plan will be customized based on the results of your consultation and these treatment options.
Sometimes strabismus can be treated in children and adult with glasses, prisms, patching or botulinum toxin injections. When these treatments don’t work, reconstructive eye muscle surgery is often recommended. Post-surgery, patients can experience improved depth perception or binocular vision, improved visual fields and decreased double vision. During outpatient surgery, the eye muscles are moved to a different position to improve alignment.
Both esotropia and exotropia are not uncommon. Misalignment of the eyes can cause doubled vision, and in children, is a common reason for difficulty with schoolwork. Recommended treatments prior to surgery include vision therapy, patching or eyeglasses, but in some cases, surgery may be the best initial treatment.
Graves' eye disease, or Graves' ophthalmopathy, develops in people with an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroid) caused by Graves' disease. In some patients, the tissues around the eye socket swells and causes exophthalmos, a protrusion of the eye that can infect the cornea. Often cool compresses, sunglasses, thyroid medications or artificial tears provide relief. Orbital decompression eyelid surgery is sometimes recommended to reposition the eyelid, which is accomplished when the surgeon removes the bone between the eye socket and the sinuses to alleviate the pain.
