Convergence Insufficiency

Convergence insufficiency (CI) is a common childhood eye-teaming problem in which the eyes have a strong tendency to drift outward when reading or doing work close up. Double vision often occurs if an eye drifts out. To avoid seeing double, a child with CI must use extra effort to make the eyes turn back in. This extra effort can lead to annoying symptoms, such as eye strain, blurred or double vision, loss of concentration, and frequent loss of place when reading and working up close.

Convergence Insufficiency

What is convergence insufficiency? Convergence insufficiency is the inability to maintain binocular function (keeping the two eyes working together) while working at a near distance. Typically, one eye will turn outward (intermittent exotropia) when focusing on a word or object at near.
