Squint is medically known as Strabismus. It is a condition where the motion of the eyes is not synchronized. They point in a different direction, almost opposite to each other. Squint eye surgery is a common eye operation to treat squint. This procedure involves tightening of muscle around the eyes so that the normal motion of the eyes is restored.
This surgery is beneficial for children or adults with delicate eyes.
This surgery changes the position of the eye muscles. After the surgery, both the eyes focus on the same point at the same time.
There are three types of squints:
Convergent squint: when one eye turns inwards.
Divergent squint: when one eye turns outwards.
Vertical squint: when the eye may turn up or down.
