    In infants or small children convergent strabismus (“esotropia”) may be caused by long-sightednes and may be corrected with spectacles. In other cases the answer may be surgery. An examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist at the first possible opportunity will provide a differential diagnosis and the appropriate treatment can be arranged. Do not wait until the child can read letters - the earlier the diagnosis/treatment, the better the outcome.
