Can strabismus appear at any time?

Yes, strabismus is a disorder that can appear at any time of life. It often appears suddenly during childhood, sometimes related to a general unwell feeling (like a cold or the flu) or emotional stress (e.g. as a result of parents separating or a change of school). Furthermore, adults can have latent or controlled strabismus that may be decompensated when associated to situations of physical or mental stress.
