Strabismus Symptoms

View Video

Strabismus affects adults and children in different ways. Symptoms of strabismus in children are typically mild. Parents may notice that children tilt their head to one side to compensate or close and cover the deviating eye. Symptoms of strabismus in adults may be more severe. Patients with this condition lose their binocular vision, which can cause double vision and loss of depth perception. As a result, patients may suffer from headaches or eye strain.
