Eye Muscle Disorders in Children and Adults
by Burton J. Kushner, M.D.

With strabismus, the eyes are misaligned and point in different directions. Most adults with strabismus have had it since childhood. However, it can occur in adults with no childhood history of the condition in which case our physicians carefully evaluate the patient for other medical or neurological causes such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disease
  • Brain Tumors
  • Strokes
  • Head Trauma


Our team of specialists provides a full range of treatment options for adult strabismus using the latest medical techniques and advances, including:

  • Eye exercises
  • Prism glasses
  • Botox injections
  • Surgery
