Policy dependent: Most insurance companies offer different policies-and coverage varies. You'll need to call your company to see if this service is covered by your policy. Most will require that you get 'prior approval' and many will require a 2nd opinion before they will grant that approval. The severity of the problem, age of patient, and liklihood that surgery will be beneficial may be taken into account. ...Read more
I'm 30 and my ambiopia is due to presciption indifference. (rt eye, lt is fine) never had roaming or wandering eye. Is it possible I will later in life?
Possible: Depending on how poor the vision is in the amblyopic eye, it is possible that the poorly-seeing eye may "drift" outwards over many years. This certainly does not happen in all cases, but some do drift if the vision is very poor. It can be corrected with eye muscle surgery if the appearance is cosmetically unacceptable. See an eye md who does strabismus surgery for evaluation. ...Read more
Wandering eye: Yes-- although sometimes not as sharply as the other eye. ...Read more
Not necessarily: The short answer is no. An eye may drift out of alignment transiently as part of a nerve palsy or muscle weakness.If alignment is re-established (palsy resolves or surgery), vision may be retained. If alignment provides a blurry or double image for too long, the brain will turn of one image in favor of a clear picture. This turning off produces amblyopia (lazy eye), the wondering eye would be affected. ...Read more
Never too late: A wandering eye can usually be improved with strabismus surgery (working on the muscles of the eyeball) at any age. We would not expect your vision, if poor in the wandering eye and you are an adult, to improve at all. The eyes can usually be made to align better and "look" more normal to others. In adults, sometimes an adjustible suture is used. ...Read more
No: Objective medical evaluation should be obtained if the eyes appear crossed in the mirror. ...Read more
See strabismologist: If the vision is good in the wandering eye, strabismus surgery (eye muscle surgery) may help. If the vision is poor in the wandering eye (amblyopia), then it is like a ship without an anchor, and may drift out wards or inwards after otherwise successful eye muscle surgery. Sometimes eye muscle exercises (vision therapy) may help, along with appropriate spectacle correction. ...Read more
Yes: The process of lining up the fixation point is part of visual development and brings the eyes into alignment. However if one eye presents a clearer image to the brain than the other, the brain may later decide to turn off the out of focus eye and thus create amblyopia. Misaligned eyes present a constant double image to the brain so one is turned off to have a clear image. The brain decides. ...Read more
