In brief: Many cases

Strabismujs is the technical term for eyes that do not track together. In childhood this can be due to lack of circuitry in the brain which holds them together, or changes in eye power, or sometimes serious internal eye pathology.
In adults it can be a residual of eye pathology from childhood, or a new event like tumors, vascular disease, strokes and trauma. It is not too common.
