    Dr. Bolinao, who specializes in strabismus, or misalignment of the eyes, says that early detection with the use of glasses may help correct esotropia (cross-eyed), exotropia (eye balls deviated outward, banlag), and hypo- or hypertropia (vertical misalignments). If not through glasses, these can be corrected through surgery.
