Most individuals have complete or significant improvement in eye alignment with one surgery. The national success rate for eye muscle surgery is 80%; however, at the Colorado Center for Eye Alignment, because of our commitment to research and evaluation of our prior surgical cases, we have found that our average success rate is above that of the national average. The ability to use adjustable sutures in adult patients has also contributed to this increased success. Immediately following surgery, some patients experience double vision. This is due to the brain trying to figure out the new alignment of the eyes. Typically, we see this phenomenon resolve over several days to weeks. Determination of the success of eye muscle surgery must wait until several months after the procedure as it takes time for the muscles to heal.
