The amount of time it takes for you to notice improvements from strabismus surgery depend upon many factors such as the condition you had surgery for, continued abnormalities (Graves Disease or tumors etc), use of adjustable sutures, visual acuity (needed to help maintain alignment), or possible need for repeat surgery.
It is not uncommon for the final results to take some time to occur. How much time? That varies from patient to patient, but it can be many months. The best person to tell you if your final result is taking longer then expected would be your surgeon.
Thank you for the additional information.
First of all I want to mention that you are going to the top ophthalmology programs in the US, if not the world, for your treatment. They will make sure you have the best outcome possible.
It is true that it is more difficult to resolve double vision in adults then children. I believe this is because a child's mind has an easier time of adjusting to new things, such as muscle surgery, then adults do. Also, with your poor central vision it will take longer, and be more difficult, for your eyes to become/remain straight.
I wish you the best of luck. You are in very good hands with the doctors at Wilmer....
No problem venting.....happy to listen.
Right now it sounds like you should take every chance to correct your diplopia -- with all you've been through you really have nothing to loose by trying. As to your chances? Well, by working with the Doc's at Wilmer they are they best that your situation allows.
Good luck and hang in there.
