How Much Does Botox Cost for Strabismus?

Botox for Strabismus

+1

The use of Botox for strabismus is more a medical than a cosmetic issue. It is best used in the hands of an experienced opthamologist who has used the product extensively for the treatment of strabismus and not for cosmetic surgeons or dermatologists. I recommend doing some internet research to find a doctor who can give you an exact quote and more information.

Depeding on the provisions of your insurance policy your out of pocket expense will vary greatly as does the geographic locale. Discuss this with your ophthalmologist.

Botox for strabismus (crossing eyes)

+1

Botox was first developed for the treatment of crossed eyes and is one of the medical indications for botox use. As such, insurance should cover it. This type injection is administered by an ophthalmologist, particularly specialized in pediatric or neuro ophthalmology.

You should be evaluated by an ophthalmoloigst who is very experienced at doing Botox injections for strabismus to ensure that you are a candidate for such treatment. After evaluating you they would be able to tell you better what the cost is and you can also check to see if insurance can cover some of the cost or if insurance won't pay for it.

This should be covered by most insurances. But if you pay than I would assume a fee of between $900 to $1200 in USA. From MIAMI Dr. Darryl J. Blinski, 305 598 0091

Dear Baytown

Please recognized that the standard for treating strabismus (cross-eyes) is with surgery.  The indications for using BOTOX to align the eyes are relatively limited.  The key is your pediatric ophthalmologist or neuro-ophthalmologist.  These are the specialists that do these types of treatments.  This is a medical indication for BOTOX and is generally covered by your health insurance.  Please do not expect your plastic surgeon's nurse to do this type of treatment!  The pediatric ophthalmologist will assess your situation and determine if you are a candidate for this approach.
