Convergence Insufficiency – Difficulty Focusing

Convergence Insufficiency is an eye misalignment that occurs when focusing on close objects. Often one eye will turn outward when trying to read, work on a computer, or watch tv. This causes eyestrain, headaches, difficulty reading, double vision, and difficulty concentrating.

Causes

The exact cause of Convergence Insufficiency is not known, but the misalignment involves the muscles that move the eye.

Treatment

The most effective treatment is vision therapy. Because the issue lies with the eye muscles, they can usually be retrained with exercises. In rare cases, reading glasses or surgery will be recommended.
