I'm scheduled to have surgery on both eyes to fix esotropia in December, at Kellogg Eye Center in Michigan. However, something has come up and i need to move to Minnesota to join you guys in November. I see that Mayo does this surgery on children, but does it do the same surgery on adults?

Hi, @owlify – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You will note I moved your post so that you could meet others in this discussion who have been talking about strabismus.

The answer to your question is yes, Mayo Clinic in Minnesota does indeed do strabismus surgery in adults.

Here are a few more recent studies Mayo conducted with strabismus in adults that may be of interest:

-On incidence and demographics of new-onset strabismus in adults https://www.mayoclinic.org/medical-professionals/ophthalmology/news/retrospective-study-identifies-incidence-and-demographics-of-new-onset-strabismus-in-adults/mac-20431002

-On strabismus in adults and quality of life: https://www.mayoclinic.org/medical-professionals/ophthalmology/news/psychological-factors-may-impact-quality-of-life-after-strabismus-surgery/mac-20430900

– On strabismus and mental illness https://www.mayoclinic.org/medical-professionals/ophthalmology/news/adults-with-nonparalytic-forms-of-strabismus-face-increased-risk-of-mental-illness/mac-20429327

Some other Connect members I'd like you to meet from this thread or elsewhere on Connect who have experienced strabismus in themselves or a loved one include @kristin1990 @ihatediabetes @rckj @claire1983. @roewes07 @hopeful33250 also may have some input.

How are you feeling about having this surgery, @owlify?
