Squint is the condition when the both eyes point in different directions. Squint could be hereditary, or caused due to severe illness at the time of birth. Poor vision in one eye can stop the brain from using that eye properly, thereby causing horizontal or vertical misalignment. Know more about strabismus.
Squint should be treated at an early age as delay can affect the vision permanently. Some people can experience double vision due to squints. Another condition commonly known as lazy eye or amblyopia is also caused in a squint eye. Know more about amblyopia.
Shekar Eye Hospital has squint specialists and paediatric ophthalmologists who diagnose the patients thoroughly and prescribe glasses, excercises, patching or surgery.
