Is it possible for a normal person to make themselves be cross eyed forever? Or just if you're born woth it?

If one eye is damaged,weaker, or the eye muscles don't work right, the brain gets a distorted image and may turn one off. Once off, it may cross. ...Read more

Age 2-4 asap. After age 4 getting 3d vision becomes rarer even after surgery. 3d vision keeps eyes straight. Exo deviations or out-crossing of eyes can be treated with glasses or prisms sometimes but may need surgery. ...Read more
