Little Girl With Strabismus

Strabismus is Misalignment of the Eyes

Strabismus can be constant misalignment (TROPIA), a tendency toward misalignment usually compensated (PHORIA) or part-time misalignment (INTERMITTENT TROPIA).

Strabismus may be COMITANT such that the misalignment is the same magnitude in all directions of gaze (straight ahead, reading, up, down, to the left and right), or strabismus can be INCOMITANT meaning the magnitude of misalignment is greater in one direction or another.

Strabismus can result in ESOTROPIA (eye ingoing, crossed or convergent), EXOTROPIA (divergent, out-going or “wall-eye”), or HYPERTROPIA (one eye higher than the other).

What Our Patients Say

"Dr. Winkle and staff provide the most professional, friendly, and best customer service. Our 5 yr old daughter had strabismus surgery with Dr. Winkle 2 weeks ago, and I couldn’t be any more happier with the results and how quickly she’s recovered. Dr. Winkle and his team provided very detailed and important information during surgery, pre-op, and post-op. They take their time to explain and answer any questions one has. Their level of professionalism and care for our child was beyond anything. We are extremely grateful and thankful for what they did to better our little one’s vision."

"What a great place to bring children. First-class facility and great staff!"

"These guys are amazing with children! I would really recommend coming here if your kiddos are experiencing difficulties with their vision."
