When I was about 3, i got strabism (exotropia) because of high fever (at least what my parents say, but I think there might also be genetic reasons).
At first, I couldn't really realize this condition and it had been normal for me till I went to school and because the reaction of other children, my parents showed me to a doctor for treatment.
And I had a surgery which wasn't so successful (at age 7). I mean my eyes were better at that time, but the symptoms gradual came back.
And then, when I was 13, I also realized I can't see farther objects well, and I had myopia.
Now, I am 17, and I've just realized that when I'm looking at close objects, on which I can focus better, my eyes really seem normal, but as the objects get farther, my left eye slowly moves to left.
Is there a medical reason behind the effect of distance on exotropia? For example if I treat myopia, would strabismus get better?
And is there a way (like exercise, ...) except surgery I can do to make strabismus better?
I would really appreciate it if you could answer my questions.
