Strabismus, known as ‘wandering eyes’ or ‘crossed eyes’, is a condition where the eyes are not properly aligned. Adults who have this condition are usually told that it is too late to correct it. Common symptoms include double-vision, loss of depth perception; a pulling sensation around the eyes; difficulty reading; and seeing overlapping or blurred images, leading to confusion. It is almost impossible for those who have strabismus to make eye-to-eye contact because of the horrible twisting sensation in the eyes. This in turn has a devastating impact on social interactions, whether professional or personal.

Until recently, insurance carriers would not cover surgery for strabismus, as they viewed it as merely cosmetic. Fortunately, things are changing, with more insurance carriers regarding the surgery as reconstructive.

Fortunately, again, our options for treating strabismus are expanding. For one thing, eye-care professionals are now saying that you’re never too old for corrective surgery. This surgery involves either shortening the muscles on the outside of the eye, if the eye is turned inwards; or shortening the inner muscles of the eye if it points outwardly. Typically, the operation is performed on an out-patient basis and the patient resumes his normal routine within just a few weeks.

There are two eye-exercise programs that are of interest to me, One incorporates the Bates Method which uses different techniques to improve various aspects of vision, including regaining the ability to adjust between near and far viewing. The other exercise program, Vision Therapy, appears to be a more comprehensive and sophisticated program than the exercise program I had years ago. Patients in this program receive neurological training or rehabilitation and the focus is not just on the eyes, but on the brain and body as well. What caught my attention, in particular, was Vision Therapy’s emphasis on getting the patient to receive information more effectively and quickly, and to react appropriately.

I definitely have noticed a lag, sometimes, between what my eyes see when I am reading, and when my brain decodes it. There are also times when I simply miss seeing what is right in front of me, only to have someone else point it out to me. Very embarrassing and frustrating!

And finally, I could not end this article without mentioning the value of good nutrition and supplementation. I figure, if I’m going to go with an exercise program, I’ll improve my odds for success by supplementing appropriately. Here are some excellent supplements: Lutein and Zeaxanthin which are carotenoids and support the macula; N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) which promotes the production of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant for clear eyes; and Astaxanthin which supports your ability to shift your vision between near and far distances.

My personal preference is to approach reversing strabismus holistically. A combination of good nutrition and a good exercise program, as well as a positive attitude may be just the ticket. If not, it’s nice to know that surgery is an option. Wishing you good health!
