Hello, folks. I have been experiencing some vision problems and I finally decided to visit an ophthalmologist. After examination, he told me I had exotropia. I must admit that I didn’t quite understand him. I am not sure what it means. Can anyone provide me with some more info? I will appreciate it.

Hello. Exotropia is a form of strabismus. Here, eyes are put outward. It is quite opposite of esotropia. People with exotropia often have crossed diplopia (double images). Causes of exotropia are still not quite known and understood. There are 6 muscles that control eye movement. They all must work perfectly synchronized in order to have proper eye movement. If just one isn’t working properly, then there is a certain form of strabismus. I hope this helps. Bye!
