    Strabismus refers to a number of different eye conditions where the eyes are not properly aligned. Strabismus (aka “squint” or “cross eye”) can affect one or both eyes and the misalignment can cause the eyes to point inward, outward, upward or downward. Amblyopia (“lazy eye” or poor vision) is a common association in children with strabismus, and diplopia (double vision) is a common complaint in adults with the condition.
