Eye muscles are attached to the sclera i.e. the wall of the eye. These muscles are covered by thin and clear membrane knows as conjunctiva. While performing the strabismus surgery, the eyelids are held open using a small instrument called the lid speculum. The eye surgeon makes a small incision in the conjunctiva to reach the eye muscles and then shorten them to stretch them as needed using a small delicate hook. In this entire process of treatment, neither is skin incision done nor is the eyeball removed from the socket. Strabismus surgery involves the use of recession and resection procedures for treating the misalignment of your eyes. While the recession procedure weakens your eye muscles by stretching and reattaching your muscles to a position farther back inside the eye, the resection procedure works towards strengthening the muscle by changing its position to a nearby tendon. The entire process of eye muscle surgery treatment takes not more than 90 minutes of time. Cost of strabismus treatment is around $4,250 per case. The goal of strabismus surgery is to correct the alignment of your eyes, and the benefit of the treatment is completely in line to its goals. Getting your vision aligned may eliminate problems like double vision, eye strain or fatigue. However, it may vary from person to person, and only a patient with the help of his eye surgeon can vouch upon the long-run effects of the strabismus treatment.
