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.
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.
Early diagnosis of Squint (Strabismus) is essential in preventing irreparable vision loss later in life. Squint treatment aims to enhance the alignment of the eyes and to correct the resulting vision loss (amblyopia). Squint and amblyopia can be treated with combination of glasses, eye patching and/or surgery.
Surgery includes treating one or more of the eye muscles to correct the position of the eye(s). The treatment is performed under local/general anesthesia in operation theatre. Now a days squint is treated with latest fornix method, leading no/ minimal scarring. this is a day care procedures and patient may resume his/her routine activities from the very next day.
