Adult strabismus generally falls into one of the following categories:

  • A childhood-onset strabismus that was never corrected.
  • A childhood-onset strabismus for which eye muscle surgery had been performed but a significant eye misalignment persists or has recurred.
  • Acquired strabismus arising from orbital or head trauma, stroke, brain tumor orbital inflammatory disease (e.g., thyroid eye disease) or prior ocular surgery.
