lt;p>HelloCustomer</p><p> </p><p>There definitely is surgery called strabismus surgery to straighten your eyes. At your age, there are several factors that need to be measured prior to your surgery. We need to know if you would have significant double vision afterwards. We need to know if you have a significant lazy (weak) eye. You should see an ophthalmologist to discuss these issues; but there is surgery that can be performed for you.</p><p> </p><p>Hope this helps and thank you.</p>

lt;p>Hello,</p><p> </p><p>I wouldn't expect you to have double vision now. But they would have to test to see if you would have double vision should the eyes be straightened. If not, then chances are good that your eyes can be straightened.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
