The disorder causes the organs to sent across two totally different images to the brain, leading to confusion. The symptoms associated with this condition can include double vision, vision loss, wrong eye movements and crossed eyes. The condition can affect both adults and children. Causes like stroke, diabetes, botulism, eye injury or traumatic brain injury can give rise to this problem in adults. Muscle control and not muscle strength usually characterizes this problem of the eyes.
