TREATMENTS

Usually poor eye coordination is successfully treated with vision therapy, or eyeglasses. Sometimes coordination will improve once near or farsightedness is corrected. In extreme cases, surgery might be needed. The success rate for improving eye coordination is quite high.
As with all eye conditions, scheduling regular eye exams with your doctor will greatly improve detecting signs of any eye issues. Eye exams are recommended at 6 months and then at three years in order to detect poor eye coordination.

Eye coordination is a developed skill.

Eye coordination is the ability of the eyes to work together in creating a single image.

The process of combining the two separate images from each eye is called fusion. A person with good eye coordination is able to keep proper alignment. A person who has poor eye coordination usually lacks proper eye muscle development, or may have had an injury or disease. Eye coordination is a developed skill.

CAUSES

Each eye sees virtually the exact same image. In order to maintain proper alignment of the two images, a person with poor eye coordination requires extra effort to compensate for their poor eye muscle control. In more severe cases, sometimes the eyes can’t align the two images and double vision will occur. When this happens, the brain will try to avoid seeing double and eventually ignores one of the eye’s images. Amblyopia, or lazy eye, is a very serious eye condition, and often the result of this happening
