Strabismus is when eyes don’t line up or when one or both eyes wander. Whether your child was born with strabismus or it happened later, the condition usually can be fixed when it’s found and treated early. At Nemours Children's, that’s what we do. Only a trained pediatric ophthalmologist (children's eye doctor) can diagnose and treat strabismus in kids. Our experts can better your child’s chances of having straight eyes and good vision as they grow.
