A squint, or strabismus, is a condition in which the eyes do not align properly.
Strabismus can be constant or intermittent.
This usually occurs because the muscles that control the movement of the eye and the eyelid, the extraocular muscles, are not working together.
As a result, both eyes are unable to look at the same spot at the same time.
It can also happen from an injury or disorder to the brain means which impacts the eye’s ability to work together.
Constant strabismus makes binocular vision impossible, which causes a person to lose depth perception.
If there are signs of strabismus, the physician or optician will refer the child to an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
The eye doctor will probably use eye drops that dilate the pupils before testing is done.
- Glasses: If hypermetropia, or long-sightedness, is causing the squint, glasses can usually correct it.
- Botulinum toxin injection, or botox: This is injected into a muscle on the surface of the eye. The doctor may recommend this treatment if no underlying cause can be identified, and if signs and symptoms appear suddenly. The botox temporarily weakens the injected muscle, and this can help the eyes to align properly.
- Vision therapy: These may help enhance brain-eye coordination and increase muscle control to improve focus.
Surgery is only used if other treatments are not effective. It can realign the eyes and restore binocular vision. The surgeon moves the muscle that connects to the eye to a new position. Sometimes both eyes need to be operated on to get the right balance.
