Strabismus is a visual defect in which the eyes are misaligned and point in different directions. One eye may look straight ahead, while the other eye turns inward, outward, upward or downward.
You may always notice the misalignment, or it may come and go. The turned eye may straighten at times and the straight eye may turn.
Strabismus is a common condition among children. About 4% of all children in the United States have strabismus. It can also occur later in life.
It occurs equally in males and females. Strabismus may run in families. However, many people with strabismus have no relatives with the problem.
