A squint eye is one of the most common eye problems in children. The causes vary from a strength difference between the two eyes, lazy eye muscles or eyes that have large refraction such as short- or near-sightedness. Children may even have poor sight in one or both eyes without a squint. If left untreated, your child may not reach full visual potential and may lag behind in school as a result of not being able to see exactly what the other children see on the board or in the school books.

Children with a squint or lazy eye may also be unable to judge distance or depth – this could influence his/her career or sporting choices. Vision will also only be clear in one eye at a time.

Nowadays, there are a number of highly successful treatment options for children with squints or other problems including the wearing of glasses, eye exercises or surgery that focuses on the muscles of the eye which are either tightened or loosened during the operation.
