What insurance companies cover strabismus (wandering eye) surgery?

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

Is it true that a wandering eye is a lazy eye?

Is it true that a wandering eye is a lazy eye?

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

Is it too late to fix my wandering eye or lazy eye? I am an adult.

Is it too late to fix my wandering eye or lazy eye? I am an adult.

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

What can I do about a wandering eye?

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

Is it possible to have amblyopia without a wandering eye?

Is it possible to have amblyopia without a wandering eye?

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
