Skelekirurgi afhjælper funktionsmæssige og psykosociale problemer

Abstract

Strabismus is a common condition affecting both children and adults. Strabismus patients may experience double vision, abnormal head position and loss of stereovision. The psychosocial negative impact of strabismus may be severe, affect self-esteem, social relationships, and job opportunities. Strabismus is a congenital condition or a result of an illness in later life and surgical treatment should be considered as reconstructive surgery and not downrated as just »a cosmetic procedure«. Strabismus surgery is safe, effective and addresses functional as well as psychosocial problems.
