Focal Points 2018 Module: Adult Strabismus

Focal Points 2018 Module: Adult Strabismus
Adult strabismus is a common condition that affects approximately 10 million American adults per year. There is a misconception amongst some clinicians and patients that surgery may not be effective in adults, or that surgery is simply cosmetic. These misperceptions often delay treatment, potentially altering patients’ visual function and negatively affecting their social interactions, employment, mental health and overall quality of life.

This Focal Points module reviews common medical and ophthalmologic conditions that may be associated with strabismus in adults and the clinical management of adult strabismus.

Complete this module to:

  • Describe common causes of adult strabismus.
  • Describe functional and psychosocial effects of strabismus in adults.
  • Describe clinical features and management of common forms of adult strabismus.
  • Summarize potential complications of strabismus surgery.
