Here is a “strabismus guideline”. I wouldn’t call it a hard and fast rule or a fact but you can use it to point you in the right direction.

The 2-4-6 rule states that if a strabismus occurs before age 2, you always get amblyopia; if between 2-4 years old, you may get amblyopia; and if it occurs after 6 years old, you will hardly ever get amblyopia.
