Strabismus is a visual problem in which the eyes are not aligned properly and point in different directions. About 4-5% of new-borns have strabismus and, over time, 50% of them develop amblyopia (lazy eye). The causes of strabismus are multiple, heredity has a crucial role, but there are children who have strabismus without a known cause.
What is strabismus and how does it manifest itself? Dr. Alexandru Dimitriu explains what congenital strabismus is.
