Treatment for strabismus aims to preserve vision, straighten the eyes and restore binocular (two-eyed) vision. After a complete eye examination, the ophthalmologist will recommend appropriate treatment. In some cases, eyeglasses can be prescribed for your child. Other treatments may involve surgery to correct the unbalanced eye muscles or to remove a cataract. Covering or patching the strong eye to improve amblyopia is often necessary.
