Are there any exercises that would help my client's double vision and nystagmus?
 
I have double vision and am 67 years old. Is strabismus possible at my age?
 
My 2-year-old has a lazy eye and astigmatism. We tried patching and got no results. Now he's in glasses and still crossing. We are doing a prism adaptation test but I’m unsure how it works. Can you help explain how it helps?
