Pseudostrabismus

In pseudostrabismus, a child’s eyes appear to be crossed but are not true crossed eyes. The facial features on the baby or child’s face often reveal the presence of pseudostrabismus. For example, the bridge of the child’s nose may be flat and wide or the child may have folds of skin in the inner eyelids, making the eyes look crossed.

Diagnosis
To avoid any misdiagnosis with strabismus, visit an ophthalmologist specializing in strabismus who will perform an accurate evaluation test called a sensorimotor examination.

Treatment
No treatment is needed for pseudostabismus. In most cases the alignment will improve as the child gets older.

Other Issues
Individuals may have a combination of pseudostrabismus and true strabismus.
