Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Yes. Depending on the amount of deviation of your eye, prisms can be used to help with the double vision.
These prisms can be a temporary type, fresnel press on prisms that are put on your current glasses, or they can be ground into your glasses Rx.
Another way to "get rid" of the double vision is to wear a patch over one eye....
However, if your eye deviation is of a constant amount and has been stable for some time eye muscle surgery, as you mentioned, is a very effective way of treating your double vision. This surgery is normally done by a pediatric ophthalmologist as they are the experts in this area....even though you are an adult :)
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
