I have a lazy eye, I was born cross-eyed and had surgery. When I was in college, I noticed that my left eye was going in a different direction. Is there anyway I can prevent the right eye from becoming lazy ?

Which eye had: surgery? If it was your 'lazy left eye' and now it's going in a different direction, it may be from studying and not resting at all hours of the night, fatigue. You do need to see your eye doctor for definitive diagnosis! If your right eye is dominant, and not moving funny, chances are high it won't move and become lazy! So, see your eye doctor, and have this evaluated further to discuss options. ...Read more

Return to eye doc...: You need to return to your eye doctor with your new glasses so your eye doctor can make sure you received the right prescription. 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.

My daughter has pseudostrabismus. Can it convert to strabismus? Can i prevent it somehow? How often do I take her for eye checkup? Thanks..

No: Pseudostrabismus is just the appearance that the eyes are not aligned correctly, when in reality they are. Usually it looks that way because of the skin folds around the eye being a little different one side to the other, and so the eyes just look out of line. If an eye doctor has examined and told you the alignment is fine, then it is. It won't 'convert' to strabismus, because there is no problem. ...Read more
