Hello there
what you are describing is called strabismus. The specialist who fixes this sort of problem is referred to as a strabismus specialist. Often they are pediatric and adult strabismus specialists. These doctors are ophthalmologists who have additional training in strabismus correction. I hope this answers your question, Regards XXXXX
