• Will my amblyopic eye develop strabismus if it hasn’t by age 28?


    Question:

    I have amblyopia but my eyes don’t cross (strabismus). I am now 28 and have been wondering will my eye start to wander with time? I understand that you can have amblyopia without strabismus but I am curious about this.


    Answer:

    There are factors to consider for which I don’t have adequate information, but it is not likely that an amblyopic eye without strabismus at your age will drift as you age. Talk with your ophthalmologist for more information.
