Corrects alignment: Strabismus surgery at your age will improve the eye position but not change the vision. If you have suppression of one eye (or amblyopia) the vision will continue at that level. The surgery itself is low risk although the eyes can redrift over the years.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
