Just got new glasses feel like I'm see cross-eyed but I'm not actually cross-eyed. Hard to focus on computer work. Never took this long to adjust befo?

Your eye doctor can check your new glasses and make sure the prescription is right. If your glasses are the right prescription, then return to the place they were made and have them adjusted again. Sometimes all it takes is a minor adjustment and you'll see fine again!! ...Read more

Yes: There are both worrisome and transient problems that can give rise to this problem. To rule out the bad issues, brain imaging is usually required after your history and exam is reviewed by your doc. I've seen this with a transient viral infection involving the nerves controlling the eye muscles. It can also represent a stroke or tumor. ...Read more

I wasn't a cross-eyed before. But as I grew older it showed up. Us it the cause of wearing spectacles?
Usually temporary: New babies often have disconjugate gaze (the eyes don't look in the same direction), especially if they are not trying to look at anything. The gaze should straighten out over the first 3 months, but parents should let the doctor know at the 2-week, 1-month, & 2-month check-ups about the gaze. Babies with disconjugate gaze after 3 months, or who have additional symptoms, should see an eye doctor. ...Read more
Yes: It is normal for young infants, under 4 months of age, to periodically look cross-eyed. Older children should be promptly evaluated to rule out more serious eye conditions which could include vision problems. Catarracts, or even tumors. Sometimes the baby's nasal bridge gives the false appearance of cross-eye, this is known as pseudostrabismus. ...Read more
Glasses, sometimes: You can break down crossed eyes into 2 basic types. One type can be fixed with glasses and one type requires surgery. If your child has the type that can only be corrected with surgery, don't be afraid of this procedure. However, i always believe a second opinion is in order prior to make this decision. That opinion should be with a pediatric ophthalmologist, frequently found in larger cities. ...Read more
Surgery: Crossed eyes are difficult to mask without dark glasses or surgical correction. Those with mildly crossed eyes can wear glasses that have prisms to force the crossed eye to look straight. Moderate to severe crossing requires surgical correction in youth; in adults with longstanding crossed eyes, surgery can be performed to improve the cosmetic appearance. ...Read more
Permanently no: Temporarily while you're doing it maybe, but not permanently. We're talking inches from the monitor though. Normal distance, even if it's a bit close, will not make you cross-eyed, unless you have some sort of eye muscle problem to begin with. ...Read more
Is there in any way possible for someone to be cross-eyed forever? I hope not. I've been thinking about it lately, really bugging me.
Exceptionally: Most misaligned eyes can be treated to produce binocular vision, either by prism or surgical correction. In some less common conditions, such as paralytic strabismus, traumatic, or from a central nervous system cause, the misaligned eyes may always be misaligned. An ophthalmologic examination is the best starting point for diagnosis and management. Good luck. ...Read more

May want to see a: Neuro-ophthalmologist. This is someone who is training as neurologist but specialty work our fellowship in ophthalmology.

Not sure: Some people have accomodative insufficiency and have a hard time converging their eyes, so the eyes go back to parallel, but I can't say why they would actually turn out- unless your eyes normally have a tendency to do that. ...Read more
