I had a strabismus surgery yesterday "exotropic and amblyopic in my left eye" I noticed my left eye has turned inwards a little. Is that normal?
Yes: On the first few days after strabismus surgery for an amblyopic, exotropic eye, there can be slight overcorrection. Since the eye will turn out again, this makes the cosmetic result last longer. In an adult, this should correct over the next few months or year. In a child, it is more common to have alternate fixation, in which case overcorrection can create amblyopia and needs patching and reop. ...Read more
