Botox for Strabismus

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.

Generally, this service is covered by insurance.

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.
