Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Unfortunately, the only thing that can be done for this is surgery. Sometimes when there is a strabismus (misalignment of the eyes) like this, some exercises can be done to help encourage the eye to stay in, but since the vision is down in this eye, it's less likely that you would respond to this. That being said, it's certainly worth a try. These exercises are called pencil pushups and basically amount to holding a pen or pencil out at arms length and slowly bringing it closer to your nose as you try to hold focus on it the entire extent of it's trip; this should be done 10 times per treatment, and doing 2-3 treatments per day. If the vision in that eye is significantly affected then this will likely be ineffective and you would need surgery to realign the eyes. Does that make sense?

Sounds good to me. I will try that, What is involved in this kind of surgery and who should i go see to get this done
This is a surgery where the muscles that move the eyes are removed from the surface of the eye (some of them, that is)--the eyeball is actually not cut into at all--and they are sutured back at different places to realign the eye. Believe it or not, a pediatric ophthalmologist is the specialist at this (just because kids have the highest incidence of strabismus).
