ESODEVIATION Meaning and Definition

  1. Esodeviation refers to a condition characterized by a misalignment of the eyes, where one eye deviates inwardly, towards the nose, while the other eye remains focused on the target. It is a specific type of strabismus, which is a general term describing any misalignment of the eyes. Esodeviation is commonly referred to as "crossed eyes" or "cross-eyed."

    Esodeviation can be either constant or intermittent, meaning it may occur constantly or only in certain situations. The severity of esodeviation can also vary, ranging from a mild inward misalignment to a more pronounced turning inward of the eye.

    Esodeviation can be caused by various factors, including problems with the eye muscles or nerves that control eye movement, refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, or underlying medical conditions. It can affect individuals of any age, from infants to adults.

    Treatment for esodeviation depends on its severity and underlying cause. Options may include the use of corrective glasses, vision therapy exercises to strengthen eye muscles and improve coordination, or surgical intervention to correct the misalignment. Early detection and treatment of esodeviation are crucial to prevent potential complications, such as amblyopia (lazy eye) or impaired depth perception.

    Overall, esodeviation is a deviation of the eyes where one eye turns inward towards the nose while the other eye remains focused on the target. It often requires intervention to maintain proper ocular alignment and ensure optimal visual function.
