    I am 62 and only in the last few months have learned the name for my condition. At about 4  years old I went into hospital for what I was told was a look at my eye. Early pics of me clearly show strabismus. I do remember wearing patches for a while at least.
    In the last few months I also read a book by Dr Susan R Barry on her struggle to overcome strabismus. I has much inspired me, so much so that I have begun trying things described in her book. I have achieved an improvement in the general quality of vision but without specialist knowledge further gain dosnt seem likely. Specialist in this field do exist in UK but are very expensive. My desire to approach such a specialist is held in check only by the dread of being told the condition is not likely to improve further
