What is Squint ?

Squint (Strabismus) occurs when the eyes are not accurately aligned and point in different directions while focussing on an object. It is generally known as ‘turned,’ ‘lazy’ or ‘crossed’ eyes.


If you notice squint in one or both your eyes then it is serious, your kith and kin will notice it very soon or even you may feel it yourself while looking into the mirror.


What Happens in Squint

In Squint, one eye or both eyes may turn either inward (esotropia), outward (exotropia), upward (hypertropia) or downward (hypotropia). Squint may be constant or intermittent. While the causes of Squint are not fully understood, it is known that an abnormality in the muscles and/or under developed vision in one or both eyes are the contributing factors.

Crossed Eyes

It is a condition in which the eyes do not match. That is, one eye is turning in a different direction than the other. Under normal conditions, the six muscles that control eye movement work together to keep both eyes pointing in the same direction.
