dc.description.abstractBackground: Esotropic strabismus is a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned with each other. In children, uncorrected esotropia may result in permanent loss of vision due to amblyopia, a condition where the nonpreferred, crossing eye is suppressed. Early identification and treatment of esotropia in children is critical, as doing so may prevent permanent loss of vision.
