Variable: It can be present at birth or may develop in the first few years of life. The earlier it is evaluated the better the chances to avoid permanent visual loss due to ambluopia (lazy eye).

Strabismus: Any age. Some people are born with strabismus. Others may have a slight misalignment of the eyes which worsens with age.
