Strabismus is a vision problem in which both eyes do not look
at the same point at the same time.
Three of the most common types of strabismus are
esotropia, exotropia, and hypertropia. In esotropia, one or both eyes turn
inward. In exotropia, one or both eyes turn outward. And in hypertropia, one
eye points more upward than the other.
