In brief: Many ways

Glasses, prism glasses, surgery on eye muscles.
Patching the strong eye can help sometimes.

In brief: Strabismus

Crossed eyes, or strabismus is managed differently depending on your age.
Children are often treated with glasses, eye patching plus possible surgery to help manage or prevent a lazy eye from taking place. In adults with chronic crossed eyes, eye surgery can be done to help with cosmetic appearance. Any recent only of crossed eyes should be evaluated promptly by your medical eye doctor.
