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

Wandering Eye: In addition to the previous useful info doctors have provided, please ask your doctor about Lyme Disease. It manifests in many unusual neurological ways, inducing eye symptoms. Most docs are not Lyme-literate so keeps at it. Ask about using a natural vision coach although most docs won’t know about them. Peace and good health. ...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
Is it normal for my wandering eye to still wander 2 days after surgery with adjustable sutures in both eyes?
Ask your surgeon: Only your surgeon can answer this question. Call him or her. ...Read more
Rapid onset adult amblyopia. Vision worsening, mostly due wandering eye that seems impossible to keep in tandem. Did patch method 4mo. No change. Causes?
Puzzling assumption: Vision worsening because of wandering eye is expected, but often the wondering is triggered by other eye or eye muscle issues. If alignment cannot be maintained the brain will deny input from one eye=amblyopia. Get the best evaluation by an ophthalmologist you can and hope for the best. ...Read more
Possibly: The most common 'wandering eye' is when vision is down in one eye and it cannot hold fixation and moves in or out compared to the other eye. There is a condition called alternation in which either eye can achieve fixation while the other snaps out or in. If there is poor vision in both eyes, they can wander in a random pattern termed nystagmus. ...Read more
No: Eye exercises do not help.Get a more detailed answer ›
Usually not: Most eyes that move out of position develop what is termed supression in which the central vision is ignored by the brain which prevents the seeing of two images at a time. Along with this is a lack of awareness of the wandering eye's position. Most people with this problem are aware of it when they look in the mirror or someone tells them about it. ...Read more
Autism vs low IQ: Most kids with autism are smart, which is obvious in the right context; they just don't tune into the world. Kids with low IQ have trouble learning; they are very tuned into the world, but have trouble understanding it. Both may engage in self-stimulating behaviors. Best assessment is by skilled interviewing and observation by pediatric pscyhiatrist. ...Read more
