Diagnosis & Treatment

Diagnosis of Eye Misalignment & Movement Disorders

Patients can be assured they will receive a comprehensive diagnosis from the Eye Institute. Orthoptists who are experts in measuring eye movements evaluate vision, eye alignment, and the potential for developing lazy eye. Ophthalmologists confirm the test results, complete the medical and refractive evaluation, and order further testing as required. The full appointment takes approximately two hours.

During the assessment, the patient is given eye drops to dilate the pupils. Patients should arrange for assistance with transportation after the appointment, when vision is altered. Public transportation and taxi information can be found on Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s How to Get Here page.

Treatment of Eye Misalignment & Movement Disorders

Based on examination findings, patients are offered one or more of the following types of treatment:

  • Optical treatment (with glasses or contact lenses, including prism corrective lenses that aid with eye alignment)
  • Medical treatment (with eye drops, patches, or exercises)
  • Eye muscle surgery.
