Brief Summary:
The strabismus impacts binocular visual acuity and stereoscopy. Thus, driving capacities of patients with strabismus may be reduced. The goal of this work is to study the possible amelioration of driving ability after strabismus surgery and to compare the driving capacities of patients with strabismus to a normal population; Patients will be tested before and after strabismus surgery using a driving simulator, binocular visual field and binocular visual acuity.
