Hello.

Dr. James :

Please Note:

Dr. James :

Does it turn toward the nose or toward the ear?
Does it turn all the time or some of the time?
How is your vision in that eye?
When did the problem start?
When was your last eye exam?

JACUSTOMER-7i8yg7is- :

it turns towards the ear,sometimes jst..my vison is poorer in ths eye i had veral ulsures in ths eye before i got my eyes tested a few months ago and nw wear glasses...it realy getss me down

Dr. James :

When did it start to turn out?
can you give me an estimate of how poor the vision in that eye is?

JACUSTOMER-7i8yg7is- :

not realy sure its only frm my teens iv become a wear of it..when i look in mirror it looksfine its when i get my picture took i realy notice it...thy said my visson isnt 2 bad but when i close my left eye thngs r blared

Dr. James :

Eyes turning out toward the ear is called exotropia. It appears you have an intermittent form of it. You should ensure that the vision in that eye is as best as it can be with an updated glasses prescription. Clear vision helps the two eyes to focus together.

Dr. James :

If there is not eye surgery to improve the vision, then you can consider eye muscle surgery to realign the eyes.

Dr. James :

In people with poor vision in the drifting eye, there is a higher chance that that eye may drift again. But certainly worth a try.

JACUSTOMER-7i8yg7is- :

how much is this and were will i go to find out bout this

Dr. James :

I'm unsure of the amount for the surgery. It is usually covered with most insurance plans. You should see an ophthalmologist for an evaluation.

Dr. James :

Do you have any other questions I can answer for you?

JACUSTOMER-7i8yg7is- :

ok
