What is Squint?

Squint, medically referred to as strabismus, is a common eye disorder characterized by the misalignment of the eyes, causing them to point in different directions.   This condition can manifest in children and may also develop later in life. The misalignment can be either temporary or permanent.

Timely treatment of squint is crucial, as neglecting it can lead to a serious condition known as Amblyopia, often referred to as "lazy eye." Amblyopia can result in permanent vision loss or even blindness.

At Theia Eye Care Clinic, our team of expert eye doctors specializes in managing and treating squint cases in individuals of all age groups. Our approach includes the following key steps:

1. Accurate Diagnosis: Our Squint Eye Specialists meticulously evaluate the type and severity of the squint, ensuring a precise diagnosis.

 

2. Tailored Treatment: Based on the diagnosis, we recommend the most appropriate treatment approach. Treatment options can vary from patient to patient due to the different types of squint.

3. Prescription Glasses: In certain cases, the recommended treatment involves the prescription of corrective eyeglasses to help realign the eyes.

 

4.Surgery When Needed: For more advanced cases of squint, surgical correction may become necessary. Our skilled surgeons are well-equipped to perform these procedures effectively.

Conclusion:

It is imperative for parents and guardians to understand that delaying treatment for squint can result in permanent vision loss or blindness due to Amblyopia.

 

In Amblyopia, the brain begins to disregard the images from the misaligned eye, leading to permanent weakening of the eye and eventual vision loss.

 

Early intervention and treatment are key to preventing such complications and ensuring the best possible vision outcomes for individuals with squint.
