• Can my daughter go on amusement park rides after strabismus surgery?


    Question:

    My daughter is going to have strabismus surgery. How long should she wait to go on rides at Disney?


    Answer:

    The decision on how active an individual can be after strabismus surgery (to fix misaligned or crossed eyes) varies depending on the physician and also the type of strabismus surgery. The best route is to directly discuss this with your surgeon as they will best be able to guide you on this. In general, most individuals can resume normal activities around two weeks following surgery with many being able to resume normal activities one week after surgery.
