Scleral Buckle/Double Vision
I recently had eye surgery with a scleral buckle/vitrectomy for a detached retina.  I am experiencing some double vision as I regain sight in my left eye.  My retina specialist warned me that this could be a result of the buckle due to all the pulling and pushing on eye muscles in order to get the buckle in place.  How is the double vision in a case like this usually corrected?  Is it a type of surgery that is delayed until the retina appears to be stabilized?

You should ask your retina surgeon when you should be referred to a strabismus Eye MD ("pediatric ophthalmologist") for treatment. Generally several months are allowed for the condition to stabilize.
