Exotropia is a divergent or outward eye turn that may be present at distance or near or both.

This may or may not have in association with it a Convergence Insufficiency.

Often present from the early stages of development, the outward eye turn is usually intermittent and may benefit from management by spectacles or Vision Therapy or a combination of both.

As in all cases of Strabismus early intervention and management is essential in order to reduce risk of compensatory measures by the brain such as Amblyopia.
