A cross-sectional study found a moderate association between each type of strabismus (esotropia, exotropia, and hypertropia) and anxiety disorder (adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 2.01; 95% CI, 1.99-2.04), as well as schizophrenia (aOR, 1.83; 95% CI, 1.76-1.90), bipolar disorder (aOR, 1.64; 95% CI, 1.59-1.70), and depressive disorder (aOR, 1.61; 95% CI, 1.59-1.63). The aOR for the association between substance use disorder and strabismus was 0.99 (95% CI, 0.97-1.02), with a decreased association seen between exotropia and substance abuse.
