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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My daughter has pseudostrabismus. Can it convert to strabismus? Can i prevent it somehow? How often do I take her for eye checkup? Thanks..

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
