When both eyes an individual  don't look in one direction that illness is called squint or strabismus. Squint can be always present or it can appear when the person is tired, sick or looking and near or distant object such a squint is called intermittent squint.  In squint the eye can be deviated in any direction- inwards, outwards, upwards or downwards.

  • Paralysis- there are six mussels that control the movement of the eye. If there is paralysis of any mussel of the eye then the eye will stop moving in the direction of action of that mussel and will start squinting in the opposite direction. This usually happens in old age due to diabetis and hypertation. 

  • Troma to the eye or head

Mostly squint develops with in few months of the birth of the child reason being 

  • Defect of vision:- many times child has very defective vision in one eye so that eye starts squinting, 

  • Congenital Cataract:- if the child has a cataract in one eye than that eye may start squinting.

  • Amblyopia- the squinting eye slowly develops amblyopia which means that even with glasses the child is unable to read 6/6. If amblyopia is not treated before the age of 11 it causes permanent damage.

  • The child is unable to develop binocular  vision and has poor depth perception  so in later life he has difficulty in driving etc.

Squint should be treated as early as possible. Now a days even one year old child is taken up for squint surgery. So that he does not develop amblyopia and has good binocular vision.

The old saying that " When the child gets old squint will go away on its own" is entirely wrong.

First the child is given eye glasses and the vision is corrected. If eye glasses alone do not correct the squint than surgery is attempted. In young children surgery is done under general anaesthesia. But in older children and adults local injection is enough. After surgery bandage is applied and patient is sent home. Recovery usually takes around 10 days. During which period patient has to avoid water into the eyes and wear dark glasses. there is often mild pain and irritation which subsides with medication.

Amblyopia is one of the commonest reasons of uncorrected defective  vision in children. Amblyopia is defined as inability of child to read 6/6 when there is no organic lesion in the eye.

  • Defective vision in one eye:- The visual cortex develops very fast during first few years of life. If during these developmental years there is some defect in vision in one one eye than brain starts suppressing that eye and takes signal from the other eye. Slowly the defective eye becomes permanently suppressed or amblyope. 

  • Squint:- Often the squinting eye becomes amblyope 

  • Congenital Cataract

We have to retrain the brain to use the amblyopic eye. First we correct any refractive error in the eyes with glasses. Now we patch  the good eye daily for six hours so that the amblyopic eye is forced to see. Patching is continued at least 1 year  to get good results.
