Emergencies will be attended Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the headquarters of IOM (Ophthalmologic Institute of Majorca). Out of this time, you have at your disposal our 24h ward service, which is located at Clínica Rotger in Palma.
A patient has strabismus (crossed eyes) when both eyes do not look at the same place at the same time.
There are different types of strabismus, depending on the direction the eye turns: inward turning (esotropia), outward turning (exotropia), upward turning (hypertropia), downward turning (hypotropia). Each patient has a tailored diagnosis and treatment.
We have to pay special attention to the abnormality in early age, as not correcting it early can mean that the child runs the risk of losing correct vision of the “lazy eye” amblyopia.
