Re: muscle eye surgery

is it caused by strabismis? My son had double vision because of it and sometimes his eye turned in. He had surgery when he was 10. He is now 33 and still thanks us.

Re: muscle eye surgery

i'm assuming that they tighten the muscle by pulling it back, but not sure yet

Re: muscle eye surgery

I had the surgery when I was 30 for strabismis, first few days was really hard to focus and see, but it got better. recovery was easy, just some asprin and I was good.
