Strabismus should be treated!

According to ophthalmologists, strabismus is found today in 2% of children.
And, contrary to popular belief, this is not a harmless cosmetic defect, but a serious disease that is fraught with the gradual deterioration of vision.

his defect can lead to loss of binocular vision. That is, the view with both eyes at once, which is formed in children 5-6 years. Without this, it is impossible to adequately assess the spatial relationships of others items.
The world is perceived in an unnatural, distorted form.

As a rule, strabismus occurs in children during the first three years of life. In most cases, accompanied by a decrease in visual acuity. Having noticed that the child is squinting, one must immediately take him to an optometrist. The sooner the treatment begins, the greater the chance of restoring normal binocular vision.

Doctors believe that the main cause of strabismus is congenital or acquired diseases of the central nervous system. These diseases inevitably affect the work of the brain responsible for the muscles that move the eyeball. Strabismus can provoke children’s infectious diseases. Also injuries in infancy, ametropia (myopia, hyperopia)

Determine the cause and treat strabismus can only children’s eye doctor, who will conduct a special examination of the eye.
The process of strabismus treatment is long and complex, often takes many months and sometimes years.

They give light rays to the middle of the retina. They excite the visual receptors. Make them work in full force. And so, gradually, the ability to see is properly restored.
However, if after many years of wearing glasses the squint is not corrected. An operation is required.

The essence of surgical treatment is reduced to shortening or lengthening of the eye muscles. If for a strong deviation from the norm may require several operations. The eye must be gradual. Step by step to get used to your new state.

However, the restoration of the symmetric position of the eyes. This does not mean the return of binocular vision.
After surgery, exercise is necessary. To help the eyes work out a pair in the bundle.
