I wanted the community’s opinion on adult strabismus surgery!

Hey everyone!

So I have an adult strabismus minor corrective surgery that I have coming up. I just wanted the positive opinion from my golden community. It’s with a very senior skilled eye muscle specialist (Ophthalmology specialist). I wanted to know if any of you have experienced strabismus long after surviving a stroke. Is it safe in our particular case once having AVM? @Artem @Angela4 everyone can chime in I just wanna hear from my peeps! It’s a minor surgery involving the affected eye muscle (my left misaligned eye) fyi.

Peace & Love to all,

Kidus

Hi @DewmasterDuce I have not had this allow I do have double vision when I first wake up and can’t focus for about 30 minutes. I guess I should mention to my eye dr.
Hopefully someone on here has had the surgery.
Wishing you the best

Oh still good to hear your opinion though Angela! I’ll keep you updated about how my scheduled successful surgery goes so I’ll save this thread! You mentioned you get double vision, do you also have the eye misalignment condition strabismus??

@DewmasterDuce I just met with a new neuro PT and he said I should of been sent to see them after my strokes and we are going to work on eye to brain stuff - He said that is why I have been tripping and falling more lately but the PT exercises even though minor make me nauseous so hopefully I dont have an accident on him. I dont think have the misalignment condition but I have only met with him once - I would think my husband would of noticed it. Good Luck on your surgery

Whats up @Angela4 ! So it’s been almost a month since the surgery and I’m seeing clear vision & my left peripheral is improving much better now gradually getting back to normal. MY EYE IS STRAIGHT AS A PENCIL again lol. I was blind but now I see hahahaha (I’m quite comedic :joy::tipping_hand_man:t4: I can normally shift my one eye side to side, up & down vertically as well as horizontally which I couldn’t do before without effort. It’s the best decision which I should’ve made earlier. Now my focus will ultimately be going to my Neurologist (like you were saying) & focusing on relearning to step & walk again. You know when a baby on there back is kicking, flailing in the air, I feel like my legs have been doing that a lot whether in the bed or chair. I’m really curious to figure out if that’s a good or bad thing!?

For anyone else who may see this one important tip is when you see an ophthalmologist, see someone very experienced as well as someone who specializes in Adult Strabismus surgery SPECIFICALLY.

@DewmasterDuce So glad you continuing to improve. That is wonderful news!
I know for me after my stroke learning to walk to again first it was slow but then something clicked in the brain and started to recover quickly.

With my new neuro PT he says I close my eyes a great deal I guess I am doing it to protect myself from getting nauseous. Its very different PT mostly moving and using your eyes which really makes feel sick. I think I was like this before the stroke but got worse post stroke.

Keep us updated on your progress-
