Eye is one of the most important parts of the human body and at the same time, it is something that is ignored. This is the reason that there are so many problems that arise in the eyes every now and then and one of them is Squint. Squint or strabismus is a medical condition of the eye in which there is an improper alignment of the eye and they do not look in the same direction at the same time. This is a condition that can affect a person of any age, either an adult or a baby.
What causes Squint ?
Squint is something that does not occur at any particular age. It can occur at any age. In Squint, one eye can turn in either direction like upwards, downwards, inwards or even outwards and the other eye looks clearly in one direction.
Moving on to the reasons of squint, it can occur either because of a nerve injury or a dysfunctioning of the muscles controlling the eyes. The other possible causes of squint include someone in the family suffering from the same condition, in other words, family history of squint that is called Congenital squint, squint that occurs because of an illness in childhood like measles or chickenpox. It may also happen because of long sight in which squint develops as the eyes over-focus for a better vision. One more thing that may cause is nerve damage in which squint develops because of an illness damaging some nerve or also because of a difficult delivery of a baby.
Treatment and Surgery
Squint is something that requires regular checkup and especially in children. If there are signs of strabismus, the child is referred to an ophthalmologist. The ophthalmologist shines a light in the eye of the patient to determine where the light comes from the corneas. If there are no signs of squint or if there is proper alignment of the eyes, the light will reach the centres of both corneas. In case it does not reach then it indicates signs of exotropia, hypertropia, esotropia or hypotropia.
There is, however, nothing to worry about. There are various treatment options and the younger the patient, the effective the treatment would be. The treatments include wearing glasses to correct hypermetropia which is causing the squint, wearing an eye patch over the good eye, putting eye drops or practicing eye exercises and the last, taking injections.
