General information on Strabismus

Strabismus, also known as cross-eyed gaze, is a misdirection of the eye. One eye may look ahead while the other eye turns inward or outward. Strabismus is an inherited condition in which the muscles behind the eyes are abnormal. Strabismus can occur in either one or both of the eyes. Some other types of strabismus can be caused by eye muscle paralysis or predisposing causes like brain tumors and injuries. Strabismus can occur in cats of all ages and is very common in Siamese cats. Siamese cats usually have congenital strabismus which is when one both eyes are turned toward the nose and appear to be cross-eyed.
