What are the symptoms of adult strabismus?

Adults with strabismus may experience:
  • Eye fatigue 
  • Double vision (diplopia)
  • Overlapped or blurred images (visual confusion)
  • A pulling sensation around the eyes
  • Reading difficulty
  • Loss of depth perception
To correct their inability to focus properly, many adults with strabismus have to tilt or turn their heads when focusing. They also are unable to make direct eye contact with both eyes when looking at people, which can make social situations awkward.
