To break it down, strabismus can be caused by any condition affecting the muscles of the eyes, nervous system and brain. The following conditions are associated with or may cause strabismus: 1. GENETICS Family history is important in physical traits and disease inheritance. Strabismus inheritance is complex and may involve multi-gene mutations or patterns of inheritance leading to the condition. Stay tuned for an in-depth look at how genetics affect strabismus inheritance.
Surgery may be a daunting approach to correcting strabismus for some. It is a relatively common procedure, however. The surgery entails recalibration of the ill operating ocular muscle in order to create balance and restore alignment of the deviated eye. The procedure historically yields a 50% success rate, thus requiring patients to undergo multiple corrective procedures.
