Strabismus or crossed eyes is a deviation of one or both ocular globes from the fixation point. Therefore, the visual axes are not directed towards the same point of space. It is distinguished according to the direction of this deviation.
Indeed, there are three types of strabismus, which are:
- Convergent strabismus or esotropia (the ocular globe is deflected inwards);
- Divergent strabismus (the ocular globe is deflected outwards);
- Vertical strabismus (the ocular globe is deflected upwards or downwards).
The appearance and the function of the eyes are very important for one’s self-esteem. Fortunately, crossed eyes are no longer a problem thanks to the improvement of the field of ophthalmology in Turkey.
