Re: Strabismus Treatment / Surgery in Adults
I know this is an old post, but maybe my experiences will help others. I had 3 strabismus (Extropia) operations as a child, (-89, -90) 2 for the left, one for the right eye. They didn't have very good results, or at least they didn't last long. Additionally the anaesthesia made me sick, and I hated being in the hospital for couple of nights, so after 3 surgeries I didn't want any more.
Growing up I hated my eyes, and hated seeing myself in photos because of them, as the more I tried to focus, the more the eyes drifted out. I'm also sure they affected my changes of getting a job. 22 years later I decided to at least ask about further surgery. To my suprise surgery techniques had developed so much that it was now a day surgery, and I decided to go ahead. I had a surgery on my right eye in April 2012 and another one in December 2012 on both eyes. Everything went well, I wasn't sick at all and now my eyes look normal. I'm so happy now seeing myself in the mirror and in photos! I have so much more confidence as I'm much more comfortable with myself! I highly recommend the surgery on anyone!
