Just had the most profound eye surgery at Mayo Clinic Rochester for my 9+year problem with double vision. I only see one image now w/o wearing prisms! A big miracle.
My surgeon gave me the "Connect" handout. I cannot find a group associated with this condition. Just wondering if one exists.
Thank you.

Hi, @roewes07 – I wanted to let you know that I moved your post on your strabismus surgery to this existing discussion on the same topic in the Connect Eye Conditions group so that you can connect with @ihatediabetes who has talked about it here before.

Sounds like your vision is really different now after the surgery, roewes07, seeing only one image without wearing prisms. Great your doctor who did the surgery offered you a Connect handout.

I also wanted you to meet a few others who have talked about strabismus on Connect, like @kristin1990 @rckj @claire1983. Thought they might be interested to hear about your surgery and how it turned out, and interact with you about it. I'd also like you to meet @johnhans and @hopeful33250.

How has your recovery from the strabismus surgery gone, @roewes57?

@ihatediabetes – how are your eyes doing lately? Is the prism film working well for you?

Hi @roewes07. I read your chat regarding your eye surgery, What type of strabismus did you have causing the double vision? I am considering surgery for cranial nerve 4 palsy being the cause of my double vision. It has been going on 4 years. Now that my eyes have settled from the AVM, the ophthalmologist suggests corrective surgery as an option since prisms offer no help. How has your experience been since your last chat? Did you have any motion sickness prior to the strabismus surgery? My ophthalmologist believes the majority of my motion sickness is due to the strabismus. It would be nice someday to be free of dizziness so I can do more. I wish you well. I can imagine the surgery has made a huge impact in your life.
