Treatment may include correction of visual impairment with patching and corrective lenses, alignment by corrective lenses, and surgical repair.
In children disturbed perception of the surrounding world, may slow physical and mental development. Frequent complication of strabismus is amblyopia (“lazy eye”) – a sharp drop in vision in the squinting eye as a result of insufficient visual load on the eye muscles.
