Strabismus

Posted by ihatediabetes @ihatediabetes, Apr 6, 2018

I found out that I have strabismus. The doctor had a prism film placed on my left eyeglass lens. That puts my left image on my right image. I have never been able to merge my eyes. I don’t know what will happen. But it feels weird. I can see better.

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?

Hello @roewes07

So glad to hear that your surgery was so beneficial! It must be a real relief to be able to see without the prisms. I'm not very familiar with this eye condition. Can you tell us something about what causes it?

Also, I'm wondering if you were a Mayo patient before having strabismus and the surgery?
