I'm hoping someone can give me some insight. I am 37 yo, born cross-eyed, and had corrective surgery at 6 months and 1 year of age. Since then, my eyes have never really been straight.
Currently, and for as long as I can remember in my teenage/adult life, my eyes are exotropic. When I focus with one eye, the other floats outward. This same behavior occurs if I focus with my other eye.
I don't notice double vision very often, and sometimes I can keep the outward eye straight, though it will never focus. Also, the vision in either eye (when I focus with it) is correctable with glassed to 20/25 or so. The eye I am not focusing with only provides peripheral vision.
Is this correctlable with surgery such as the adjustable sutures? If so, would both eye need to be corrected? Is there a danger of double vision?
Thank you for any insight!
