1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Decompensation of a tendency toward strabismus can appear in the teen years as the eye grows and optical correction changes.
New onset strabismus must be evaluated for possible medical causes.

In brief: Yes but not typical

Eye turns can develop in the teens but are usually present before.
A new onset eye turn requires evaluation by an eye doctor.
