    There are several treatments to be used alone or in combination to treat crossed eyes. The most effective way is to have surgery which is performed to strengthen or weaken the effect of one or more of the muscles that move the eye. Another way to treat crossed eyes is Vision therapy. It can help train a patient's brain to align his or her eyes to focus and visually process images by using computerized optical devices, including lenses and filters, to develop the eye muscles. To choose the most suitable treatment, you should consult a pediatric eye doctor.

    Crossed eyes are also called strabismus in medical term. It's a kind of eye disorder of when the eyes focus on something they are not lined up together in the same direction. More than 50% children suffering crossed eyes got it when they are born. Crossed eyes children should correct this as early as possible in their life. Or it might cause permanent damage.
