    First of all, I think it is necessary to introduce the definition of strabismus. Strabismus is the eye problem, also called as crossed eyes or squint eyes. It refers to the misalignment of the two eyes. When one eye points at a direction, while the other eye points at a total different direction. The causes of strabismus vary a lot, including genetics, inappropriate development of the fushion center of the brain, disorder of the muscles, nerves and injuries. Although in most cases, it is caused by brain disorder, yet strabismus surgery is mostly to reach the alignment by adjusting the muscles. Strabismus surgery help patients to get good cooperation of the two eyes. It can slove the double vision as well as the monocular caused by squint. It indeed improves the binocular vision of the patients a lot,but it can't correct the refractive problems, such as myopia, astigmatism or hyperopia.

    Of course, Strabismus surgery can improve eye vision. A study has shown that strabismus surgery is the third most common eye surgery in the United States. Strabismus surgery is surgery on the extra ocular muscles to correct the misalignment of the eyes.Strabismus surgery is a one-day procedure. The patient spends only a few hours in the hospital with minimal preoperative preparation. Loosening or weakening procedures, tightening or strengthening procedures, and transposition or repositioning procedures are types of strabismus surgery. So if you have decided to improve your vision through strabismus surgery, you had better hold consult with your doctor and select the proper and safe type for you. After cataract surgery, you must make time to care for your eyes. Two or three different eye drops to use after surgery, sometimes eyeglasses also need.
