What is adult strabismus?
Strabismus is the deviation of one or both eyes, so that each eye looks in one direction, either continuously or only under certain circumstances. It can be convergent (inward deviation), divergent (outward deviation) or even upward or downward. The consequences it entails, which are not only aesthetic but also psychosocial, should not be underestimated, as this eye disease can affect self-esteem as well as personal and professional relationships.
Although it seems like a typical childhood problem and we are used to seeing children turn their eyes away, it is estimated that approximately 4% of the adult population also suffers from it.
