Lazy eye surgery?
How dangerous is this, and what exactly does it entail? How good and normal looking are the results and does it make the eyes?

I’m in early twenties. I had crossed eyes as a baby, got surgery and eyes patches at age one or two, tops. It fixed the crossed part, and aligned them well ENOUGH so they look straight ahead together. But ANY other direction, and they become crooked, and don’t look in the SAME direction, ie don’t work together.

And they appear not to move unless I look left or right. But just looking straight my eyes just “sit” there…

I’m sooo self conscious about it and can’t barely look people in the eye. I feel like I have good qualifications for jobs but they don’t hire me in good positions due to my eyes and how it makes me self conscious.

Just wondering how well the surgery will correct this? Will my eyes move together well after surgery and look normal?

i had the same surgery at age 3 and it corrected my eyes extremely well. i can still tell that one eye looks a little weaker, but i don’t think others notice it and they move well together. you should consult with the very BEST opthamologist in your city and get his/her opinion. i think you could definitely get an improved result. best wishes. also, i recently read about some very extensive eye exercises for adults that will drastically improve poor lazy eye surgery, etc.

Eye muscle surgery is fairly simple. The doctor measures the amount of deviation each eye has, then exposes the muscle that is just under the sclera,(the white part,) on the side of the eye that he wants to shorten. With a special measurement marker, they are able to mark exactly how much of that muscle need to be removed to bring the eye into correct alignment. The piece of the muscle is then removed and the new edge is reattached to the eye using microscopic suture. The sclera is sutured back in place and your eye deviation is corrected.
