What About Patching?
1. Is the eye deviation the same angle in all directions?
2. Is the brain suppressing input from one eye to avoid noticing double vision?
3. If so, how hard is it to overcome the suppression?
4. Will glasses help to straighten out the eyes?
Unless your eye doctor is looking at all of these factors, he/she cannot promise a functional cure with the typical patching regimen that is usually recommended. Doing surgery will make the eyes appear straight but the patient still hasn’t learned to process binocular input and develop normal depth perception. Without depth perception, there’s no reason for the brain to keep the eyes aligned and this is why doctors perform multiple surgeries on the same patient. Patients often get a temporary cosmetic improvement but no improvement in function.
