Yes but not typical: Eye turns can develop in the teens but are usually present before. A new onset eye turn requires evaluation by an eye doctor.

What are all of the options for treating strabismus after the teen years?

Surgery: The hope is to restore the position of the eyes so that they look like both are oriented the same way. If the variant position is cosmetically obvious, the only solution is surgical repositioning. There are no medications or exercise therapies which will reposition the eyes.
