An affection of one or both eyes, in which the optic axes can not be directed to the same object, -- a defect due either to undue contraction or to undue relaxation of one or more of the muscles which move the eyeball; squinting; cross-eye.
An abnormality of the eye. Sometimes referred to as "lazy eye", the eyes do not sit evenly with one another and will list either inward or outward. This can be surgically corrected. + Associated link: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001004.htm
(struh-BIZ-mus): Eye misalignment caused by extraocular muscle imbalance; one fovea is not directed at the same place in a scene as the other.
Greek strabismos = squinting; hence, inability to focus both eyes on a given point.
heterotropia or tropia; inability to attain or maintain binocular vision due to some type of muscle imbalance in one eye, causing that eye to turn in, out, up, or down relative to the other eye; can be “intermittent” (occurring sometimes), “constant” (occurring all the time), and/or “alternating” (occurring sometimes with one eye and sometimes with the other eye, whether intermittently or constantly)
a condition in which the visual axes of the two eyes differ, so that they do not fix on the same object; condition of being cross-eyed
A visual defect in which one eye cannot focus with the other on an objective because of imbalance of the eye muscles.
any misalignment of the eye
An oculomotor functioning impairment that prevents an individual from maintaining proper eye position. This is caused by weak eye muscles that allow the eyes to stray from the binocular fixation position in a converging or diverging manner.
misaligned (“crossed”) eyes due to imbalance of the ocular muscles or other causes.
More commonly known as crossed-eyes, strabismus is a vision condition in which a person can not align both eyes simultaneously under normal conditions. One or both of the eyes may turn in, out, up, or down.
Eye disorder in which the eye turns inward or outward. Caused by one or more improperly functioning eye muscles.
A deviation in which both eyes aren't trained on the same spot. Also called crossed eyes or lazy eye.
"crossed eyes"; a condition in which the one or both of the eyes are misaligned caused by poor muscular control. The condition often occurs in children before 21 months of age but may develop as late as age 6. Treatments include corrective eyewear, visual therapy, or surgery.
An eye muscle weakness resulting in the eyes looking in different directions at the same time. May be corrected with glasses, eye exercises, and/or surgery. Also called lazy eye or crossed eyes.
imperfect eye coordination (crossed eyes).
A condition in which difficulty with eye muscle balance and coordination causes one or both eyes to turn in, out, up, or down.
abnormal alignment of one or both eyes
a problem with the extraocular (eye) muscles, which lead to a lack of coordination between the eyes
An inward or outward turning of one or both eyes.
This condition occurs when the muscles of the eye are misaligned and binocular vision is not present.
an abnormal alignment of the eye in any field of gaze, constant or intermittent, and occurring at distant and/or near fixation. Occurs mainly in early childhood and results from poor muscle coordination between the eyes. Detected using a cover test. When examining the affected eye, to not be focusing at the target object when, in fact, it is. The condition can affect a patient's candidacy for LASIK. Less than 5% of the population have strabismus. Also called lazy eye. See cover test.
The condition in which binocular fixation is not present; commonly referred to as "cross eyed".
eye misalignment caused by an imbalance in the muscles holding the eyeball.
Muscular condition in which the eyes do not move in unison.
Strabismus (crossed eyes) is a major cause of amblyopia (lazy eye). It occurs when one or both eyes fail to develop normal sight during childhood. Without corrective treatment, the disorders lead to significant visual loss and diminished depth perception.
A visual disorder, also called cross-eye or wall-eye, involving the inability to fuse the images in the two eyes. Children with strabismus initially have good vision in each eye, but because they tend to favor one eye, they often lose useful vision in the other eye. Vision can be restored if the strabismus is corrected before the age of four.
("crossed eye" ", "lazy eye", "wandering eye", esotropia, exotropia, hyperptropia) Affects approximately 4 out of every 100 children. It is a visual defect in which the two eyes point in different directions. One eye may turn either in, out, up, or down while the other eye aims straight ahead. Due to this condition, both eyes do not always aim simultaneously at the same object. This results in a partial or total loss of stereo vision and binocular depth perception. The eye turns may be visible at all times or may come and go. In some cases, the eye misalignments are not obvious to the untrained observer.
This condition often called "lazy eye" occurs mainly in early childhood and results from poor muscle coordination between the eyes. It also occurs in adults. When looking at the lazy eye, it appears as though the lazy eye is not looking directly at you when, in fact, it is. This may or may not mean a patient is not a candidate for LASIK. Less than 5% of the population have strabismus.
condition where the visual axes of the eyes are not parallel
Failure of the eyes to focus on an image, usually the result of an imbalance of the eye muscles.
Deviation of eye movement which prevents the two eyes from moving in a parallel fashion.
misalignment of the eyes, also known as cross eyes.
inability of one eye to obtain binocular vision with the fellow eye; usually due to imbalance of the muscles of the eyeball.
visual disorder when one eye cannot focus with the other, here one eye tends to cross or wander
Weakness of eye muscles allowing eyes to cross.
inability of the two eyes to simultaneously direct the visual axes to the same target
This means that the two eyes are not pointing at the same place. Eye exercises, corrective lenses or surgery can help this problem.
A condition of abnormal alignment of one eye in relation to the other. Esotropia and exotropia are types of strabismus. Go to Top
Condition in which a person's eye turn in.
A lack of coordinated eye muscle movement, observed as either "crossed-eye" or "wall eye."
sexual arousal from eyes of partner.
The condition that occurs when the two eyes do not align together resulting in double vision or the blocking of one eye's visual image to the brain.
a condition in which the eyes are not aligned correctly, such as cross-eye (one eye points inward) and walleye (one eye points outward)
Commonly called a â€œcrossed eyeâ€ or â€œwandering eyeâ€. It is an eye that turns in or out.
A visual defect in which the eyes are misaligned and point in different directions.
A misalignment of the eyes: they don't point at the same object together. Crossed eyes are one type of strabismus.
an abnormal alignment of the eyes, commonly referred to as being cross-eyed; can sometimes be treated temporarily with Botox
a condition in which the eyes are not aligned; one eye will appear straight while the other eye turns inward, outward, upward, or downward.
A condition in which the eyes are misaligned and unable to point in the same direction at the same time. Crossed eyes is an example of strabismus.
an abnormal condition in which the eyes do not move together or are "crossed". Due to this condition, both eyes do not always aim simultaneously at the same object. This results in a partial or total loss of stereo vision and binocular depth perception.
Abnormality of binocular vision characterized by deviation of one eye, which causes defective parallellism in both visual axes so they no longer cross at the fixed point. ( strabisme, n.m).
a misalignment of the eye muscles that may cause the eyes to turn inward (crossed eyes or esotropia) or turn outward (wall eye or exotropia).
Manifest deviation of the eyes.
condition where the eyes are not teaming accurately; esotropia is one type, exotropia (divergent strabismus) -eyes pointing further in space than object of regard, vertical strabismus (object appears doubled vertically) are others. Any of these may be constant, intermittent or may appear to involve only one eye or both.
In vision, a lack of binocular depth perception caused by a person?s eyes not pointing in the same direction early in life. See also astigmatism.
Crossed eyes, or eyes turning inward.
Lack of coordinated eye movement in crossing and/or wandering eyes due to an imbalance of the eye muscles and occurs in half of all children with spastic CP.
Strabismus was originally identified as a Drosophila protein involved in planar cell polarity Tanya Wolff and Gerald M. Rubin (1998) "Strabismus, a novel gene that regulates tissue polarity and cell fate decisions in Drosophila" in Development Volume 125, pages 1149-1159. . Flies with mutated stranismus genes have altered development of omatidia in their eyes.
