• Can my nerve damage be related to my strabismus?


    Question:

    I have nerve damage which causes the corner of my lip to raise when my eye closes. Now that same eye has strabismus. Could the nerve damage be related to the strabismus?


    Answer:

    The nerve damage that you describe related to the lip corner and eyelid closure is unlikely to be directly related to the eye misalignment. However, the same original issue that caused the nerve damage could have caused damage to different nerves that control the eye alignment.
