Strabismus surgery is a procedure on the extra ocular muscles to correct strabismus, when the eyes are not straight and do not focus on the same object.

When a person has strabismus, the eyes don't focus together on the same object and each eye sends a different picture to the brain. As a result, the brain might see two images (double vision) or the object looks blurry. Brains are really smart, and they don't like getting two different pictures instead of one. To fix the problem, the brain may ignore the picture coming from the one eye so it gets only one clear image. By shutting off the bad eye in favor of the good one, the bad eye gets weak or lazy (causing amblyopia), and without treatment the bad eye might eventually even become blind. One of the other big problems is that with 2 eyes pointing in different ways, the persons face will look strange and she/he may lose confidence.
The doctor will need full medical record of the patient before the surgery. Patients should come for the surgery with empty stomach (6 hours before the surgery).
