http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;... I'm pretty sure you HAVE to get surgery in order to fix that. I really don't know what you can do to minister to that without surgery. Sorry, bud...
I think the eye that looks at the other direction is call the "lazy eye" cause it depends on the other eye to look at things. my little cousin has it and he wear an eye patch now. But its only for a while. You wear the eye patch over the eye that is focused so consequently the lazy eye is the only thing you use to look and it will enjoy to focus and look Straight ahead. So just get an eye patch or something to cover the good eye so next you depend on the lazy eye for a few weeks.
You should see a pediatric ophthalmologist. They are medical doctors who specialize in strabismus (misaligned eyes) in children and adults. They will be able to determine how you use your eyes together, your fantasy in each eye, how turned or drifted your eyes are, if you need goggles or contacts (which help with the alignment of some people's eyes), and if you're a candidate for strabismus surgery. If you are a contestant for strabismus surgery, you don't actually have to have the surgery- you'll merely know it's an option for you if you decide you want it.

http://aapos.affiniscape.com/association... I had equal problem as you. I do I have a cousin that also had this problem and she had surgery and it did work. But I intuitively never got the surgery and never would. The reason your eye does that is b/c you hold a "lazy eye" meaning that one of your eye's vision is of poorer quality the other so you basically unintentionally use one eye (my good eye) to see. When I go to my eye doctor years ago he told me this exercise to do every night before going to bed to help me fix the problem because contained by my situation he said there was hope to fix my problem. So basically the exercise be using a sharp pencil you hold it with one hand and move it back and forth and using two eyes focus on the point so it help you to use both eyes. One advice to prevent it from getting worse is try not too watch TV so much because that was the result in for me ever since I was born I watched tv for more than 12 hours a day since my parents are inactive. Oh yeah, other eye exercises also works as long as you're practising using both eyes focusing on an object. Also keep in mind that surgeries do hold side effects. I've read this article about people that had laser eye surgery and the article explained how folks were complaining about it because they get really fruitless headaches and their eyes hurt and stuff after.

Good Luck with your problem. Source(s): I've had this eye problem for since I be quite small and after following the eye doctor's order I'm doing better.
It would seem that adjectives you have to do is make that eye, the one pointing over there, point straight ahead. Then it will stay that course and we will be 'right'.

The problem isn't that the muscle is weak, though that could be a cause like surrounded by Diabetes, Syphilis, other vascular problems. The reason the eye doesn't see well is that the brain ignores or suppresses that eye's imitation. It makes the view straight ahead, which is really off somewhere else, doesn't exist, or is overlooked, actively ignored. The blind spot or suppression scotoma has to be eliminated.

When surgery is done, and it isn't that difficult or hazardous as one would assume reading these answers, the muscles are unattached, the eye moved straight or just beyond straight, and the muscles are reattached. One will be too long now, so the extra muscle will be rescected, and the other will be reattached further back than it's innovative insertion.

If the eye is past mid-line, then the eye will drift towards center after the surgery. As it gets more and more internal, the items on the side of the vision of each eye, that correspond to the same nouns in the other eye, will hopefully 'fix'. This is how the eye stays aligned, retinal correspondence.

But if the eye isn't moved far enough, the blind spot that is straight ahead of the body isn't see, no retinal corresponding points are lined up, and the eye will drift back out, or in.

Doing eye exercises can relieve if one has a weak eye. Or a weak muscle which wants a little 'help'. This is the orthoptics mentioned.

The why of the deviation is another issue. If there is a problem where the retina have been dragged towards the temple, such as in Retinopathy of Prematurity, and the eye is deviated so that straight ahead as far as the macula and pupil are concerned is straight ahead for the body, then surgery to fix the muscles or orthoptics are the 'wrong' therapy to pursue.

and there's more.....


lots more.

The best answer would be for you to see a Pediatric Ophthalmologist or Strabismologist, get an evaluation and find your true diagnosis, the degree of visual impairment, and the list of therapies, from orthoptics to surgery. If you go online to find someone who knows how to fix this next to their special plan or exercise plan, or relaxation plan or .....think of it as just more snake oil which can cure even Cancer! If your problem is in recent times a lazy eye, there are exercises that you can do to help. Cover the strong eye and engineer the lazy eye follow a pencil as you pass it in front of your facade... don't move your head just your eye. Repeating this might help stregenthen the muscles. Quite a bit depends on what the doctors hold said the problem is. I would get more than one opinion before someone put the blade to my eye. Good luck.
YES you can - with vision psychiatric therapy:

Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised, non-surgical treatment program designed to correct eye movements and visual-motor deficiencies. Vision Therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain's ability to control:

eye alignment,
eye teaming,
eye focusing abilities,
eye movements, and/or
ocular processing.

Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters. During the final stages of psychoanalysis, the patient's newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration near motor and cognitive skills.

While Vision Therapy includes the eye muscle training methods of orthoptics, it has advanced far beyond it to include training and rehabilitation of the eye-brain connections involved in vision. Clinical and research developments within Vision Therapy were closely allied with developments in neuroscience during the twentieth century. Research continues surrounded by the 21st century.

In Vision Therapy programs, optometrists look at the neurological control system and thus are treating the whole visual-motor system and altering reflexive behavior, which results in a lasting cure. Also, most optometrists rely on bureau based therapy, which they believe is more accurately performed and monitored.

Vision Therapy for strabismus collectively consists of either weekly or bi-weekly office based analysis. Some doctors reinforce in-office therapy with home therapy. This is base upon a case-by-case determination. Milder intermittent cases may be handled with home therapy. Older children are collectively more cooperative and thus obtain a greater benefit from therapy. Source(s): http://www.strabismus.org/strabismus_cur...
I have a similar problem and as far as I know the only track to fix it is surgery. Sorry, but no, you can't. Good luck!
