VISION THERAPY FOR DOUBLE VISION

After 2 months of strabismus surgery my 13 year old child is continuing to see double in both eyes, seems to be getting worse in past few weeks.  Would you recommend Vision Therapy? Very worried mum.
Kind Regards

No vision therapy is not helpful for this and, when done by optometrists, is inordinately expensive. I suggest you get a second opinon from another strabismus Eye MD ophthalmologist.

I agree with Dr. Hagan's advice (above).  However, if there is truly nothing that the strabismus specialists can do, you might attempt a trial of vision therapy if your son is really motivated.  (It works best for eyes which turn outward--toward the temple.)  Vision therapy did help me to some degree (I stopped after surgery eliminated my double vision), although I found the computerized home exercises very frustrating.  (I failed an initial task more than 100 times before finally succeeding.)  I'd recommend that you set short-term goals and insist on progress.
