What does it involve?
Strabismus surgery in children is the treatment to correct this eyesight problem that consists of the loss of parallelism between both eyes insofar as they are not properly aligned and each one points in a different direction.
When is it carried out?
Eye surgery is only necessary if eye deviation persists after the optical defects and amblyopia have been corrected.
In strabismus surgery, the oculomotor muscles, responsible for moving the eyeball, are operated on. The procedure consists of strengthening or weakening the muscles responsible for the eye deviation.
Because the patients are children, surgery is performed under general anaesthesia on an outpatient basis, with the patient returning home after the operation.
