In order to read efficiently, our eyes have to focus to make print clear, converge to make print single, and track to find the start of the next line. To comprehend what we read, the brain must process and interpret visual information efficiently.
Cross-eyed, medically known as strabismus, refers to a condition in which eyes are misaligned. It commonly occurs when the muscles that control eye movement are not properly working together. The result is one or both eyes turning inward- esotropia, or outward- exotropia.

Though it cannot be prevented, its complications can be avoided with early intervention. Even if you notice symptoms intermittently – when your child is ill, stressed, or fatigued – your child should be evaluated.
Vision can have a big impact on dizziness and balance disorders. The visual system and vestibular system are linked together by something called the vestibular-ocular reflex. Any problem with how efficiently the eyes take in information can affect how these systems work together. Symptoms of visual-vestibular dysfunction include:
Binocular vision dysfunction is a problem with how the two eyes work together to maintain single, clear, comfortable vision at all distances. Binocular vision dysfunction can be a developmental problem in children or can develop due to disease, trauma, the natural aging process, or excessive technology use. Problems with how the eyes work together may cause symptoms of:
