Hi,

Thank you for your query.

Strabismus is correctable. The following are my answers to you.

1. If is is associated with visual problem it should be corrected as soon as possible.
2. If it is a cosmetic one and does not cause any visual problem it is correctable as well.

You need to attend a multidisciplinary eye hospital and contact a strabismus expert. It will require a surgery of your eye muscles to correct the problem.

Hope this answers your query. If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.

Have a nice day...
