Strabismus (crossed eyes)
The eyes should work together as a team. When one eye is deviated (turned too far in one direction), we call the condition strabismus, or crossed eyes. Strabismus occurs most often in young children. A child with strabismus may have esotropia (one eye turning in), exotropia (one eye turning out), or hypertropia (one eye higher than the other).
