Eye muscle surgery is used to correct strabismus, which is a misalignment of the eyes. This condition can be congenital or acquired and is present in both adults and children.
For eye alignment restoration, Dr. Piccione will manipulate the muscles as necessary for each unique condition and align the eyes as desired. This is an outpatient procedure that requires general anesthesia and usually lasts about 15 minutes.
