Adult Strabismus and Eye Motility Disorders Clinic

The UCSF Adult Strabismus and Eye Motility Disorders Clinic provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for all eye movement disorders, including abnormal eye alignment from an injury or a neurological condition. The clinic also cares for patients with asthenopia, or eye strain.

When needed, we coordinate care with other practices, such as general ophthalmology and ocular plastic surgery, to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient. Treatments range from conservative management with prismatic glasses and exercises, to a full array of surgical options, including Botox injections.
