Strabismus: Strabismus is treated only if the person sees double most of the time. The first treatment is prism glasses-- the images are aligned to be seen as one. Then, if this does not work, and the deviation is stable, surgery to line up the eyes is considered.

Strabismus cure: Cure can be challenging....prismatic spectacles are often used to cope and in some cases surgery can correct double vision. A board certified pediatric ophthalmologist specializing in strabismus would be a best option for advice based on degree of strabismus.
