Symptom #2: Double Vision

Patients with strabismus may notice that they experience double vision. This is a problem that occurs when the images being sent to the brain by the eye are not sent in tandem. Many people have experienced this when they have drank too much alcohol, but people with strabismus often have to deal with this problem incessantly.

People who are born with the condition, however, may never be aware of the double vision. This can either be because they have become accustomed to it since they have never known anything else or because the brain effectively ‘cancels out’ the image sent to the brain by the weaker eye. Double vision can be confusing and disorienting and can make it difficult for someone to do something like drive a motor vehicle.
