Illustration of exotropia, a form of strabismus where one or both eyes turn outwards. The condition may be present from birth (congenital exotropia), develop within the first two years (infantile exotropia), or occur later in life secondary to another condition (acquired exotropia). Treatment depends upon the underlying cause, but may include glasses, botox injections to the eye muscles, or surgery.
