Best Squint Surgery in India

Squint surgery appears one of eye surgeries that falls on the extraocular muscles to correct the misalignment of the eyes. Squint is considered a 048misalignment of the eyes that the right and left eyes are pointed in different directions for. Though it is a common condition among younger populations, involving 2 to 4 percent of children, it may also appear later in life.

This misalignment may be permanent or it may be temporary, occurring occasionally. The deviation may be in any direction: inward, outward, upward or downward. If the child is not treated at the proper time, a condition called amblyopia occurs, which ultimately leads to permanent loss of vision.

Causes to Squint Misalignment

  • Weakened muscles or abnormal nerve impulses to the eye muscles;
  • Blurred or poor vision due to cataract, corneal scars, glaucoma, refractive errors, optic nerve disease, retinal disease, tumors of the eye etc.;
  • Heredity;
  • Injuries;
  • Pathology inside the eye, such as cataract.

Benefits of Squint Surgery

Risks of Surgery
