Leucoma

La gente es muy sensible a la posición de los ojos de otras personas. Al mirar la posición de los ojos de las personas se puede determinar con precisión hacia dónde están mirando. La gente también es sensible a los ojos que no están mirando en la misma dirección, lo cual es llamado ojos bizcos o estrabismo. Hay otros términos médicos más específicos para referirse a los ojos volteados hacia afuera o hacia adentro o que rotan de manera anormal. Cualquier indicio de estrabismo en los niños pequeños debe ser evaluado inmediatamente, al igual que un estrabismo de inicio reciente que se presente en un adulto.
