Adult strabismus disorders are treated by pediatric ophthalmologists.
Adult strabismus generally falls into one of the following categories:
- Uncorrected childhood-onset strabismus
- Childhood-onset strabismus for which eye muscle surgery was performed, but significant eye misalignment persists or recurs
- Acquired strabismus from orbital or head trauma, stroke, orbital or brain tumors, thyroid-related eye disease, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis, or prior ocular surgery (including cataract surgery with retrobulbar injections, glaucoma, or retinal surgery)
