Binocular Dysfunction
Binocular Dysfunction is the inability to coordinate the eyes together effectively. It reflects the brain’s inability to align and coordinate both eyes as a team. With this condition, the eyes have difficulty functioning efficiently or simultaneously.

Strabismus
Strabismus, or misalignment of the eyes, is a binocular vision disorder that results from deficient eye teaming skills at distance, near, or both that causes an eye to suppress, turn off, resulting in an eye turn in, out, down, or up, often referred to as crossed eye or lazy eye.

Convergence Disorders
Convergence is the focus and coordinated movement of our eyes inward to maintain a single image at near. We need to focus our eyes inward for close work like reading and computer use. Convergence skills are developed and learned when we are children. Symptoms of a convergence disorder can include double vision, headaches, eye strain, avoidance of near work, difficulty concentrating and reading, and poor performance in sports. Types of Convergence disorders: convergence excess and convergence insufficiency.
