Strabismus is a condition in which the eyeballs point in different directions. To treat Strabismus, eye muscle surgery is advised.
Eye muscle surgery involves making an incision in the conjunctiva, the outer cellophane like covering of the eye, and separating one or more of the eye muscles that move the eyes in various directions. No incision is made on the skin. The eye is not pulled out of the socket. The eye is gently moved no more than one normally moves the eye when looking around.
Strabismus surgery usually takes 20-40 minutes. General anesthesia is used. The surgery is almost always performed as Day Surgery which means that the patient comes into the hospital or day surgery facility the morning of the surgery and goes home the same day. Almost all patients can leave the hospital the same day the surgery is performed.
