Comment from: Lela, 19-24 Female (Caregiver) Published: February 08

After years of patching, glasses and prisms for strabismus, driving became difficult for our 19 year old son with double vision in his lazy eye. After continually being told there was nothing more that could be done I found a hospital and doctor. He will perform surgery cutting the muscle and tying it back at the end of this month. Healing will be about a week but I am told that the brain will readjust itself and double vision will go away.
