The two eyes are normally parallel except while looking at near objects. Squint is when the eyes are not parallel. Apart from its cosmetic problems, it can give rise to a lazy eye or loss of stereoscopic vision. To preserve the stereoscopic vision and to prevent lazy eye, it is important to treat squint as soon as possible, as the development of the eye takes place in the early years of childhood. The treatment includes glasses, exercises, surgery or a combination of these. All facilities for the diagnosis and treatment are available at our hospital.
