Understanding the Long-Term Benefits
Realigning the eyes enhances depth perception and minimizes double vision. For children, it can also prevent refractive errors from developing.
Minimal Recovery Time
As an outpatient procedure, strabismus surgery usually requires about a week of recovery. Children in particular can often return to their normal activities within a few days.
Because eye contact is such a vital part of human communication, misaligned eyes can make it difficult for both children and adults to interact with others. Treatment can consequently improve self-confidence in social situations.
