Strabismus--Surgery
Abstract
Le strabisme est un problème qui se présente quand les deux yeux ne s’alignent pas dans la même direction. Cela signifie qu’ils ne regardent pas le même objet en même temps. La présente publication explique à quoi s’attendre après l’opération (suture ajustable, pansement, médicaments, vision double). Il traite aussi de la façon d’appliquer l’onguent pour les yeux et des soins de suivi.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0025, "Strabismus Repair". Strabismus is a disorder when both eyes do not line up in the same direction. This means that they don’t look at the same object at the same time. This pamphlet explains what to expect after surgery (adjustable suture, dressing, medication, double vision). It also goes over how to apply eye ointment and followup care.
