What's strabismus? If you run into the condition that one eye sees clearer than the other, you are in great danger of strabismus. At that time, you may probably use the stronger eye more often. As a result, the stronger one will turn bad gradually. Meanwhile, as the weaker eye is not used quite often, its muscle becomes beef-witted and being out of good use. So you unconsciously see with the stronger eye only. The process will come into a vicious circle and your eyesight can be badly damaged in the end.
Actually, everyone has the problem of strabismus more or less. The most important thing we can do is to find out which eye is weak-seeing and to take some measures to balance the sight of both two eyes.
How to know whether you're strabismus or not? The test is quite simple. Cover one eye and see a fixed object, then change to cover the other one. Compare the effects of the two eyes when seeing and then you can determine which eye is weaker.
After you understand the situation in which the two eyes are, you can train the weaker eye to function well at the right position. For a long time, you can achieve proper eyesight for your bad eye.
