Title: Squint In Adults – What And How? - Arohi Eye Hospital

Squint In Adults What And How?
Arohi Eye Hospital
Squint generally begins in childhood, which if
treated quickly and early can eliminate or at
least manage the condition. Thus, when squint is
seen in adults, it should be understood that it
is the result of progressive untreated squint
from childhood. However, this is not always the
case. There could be rare instances where the
individual may not be having squint in childhood,
but may have developed the condition in
adulthood due to an eye injury or head trauma.
Approximately 4 of adults today suffer from
squint, most of them related to accidents,
injuries, and medical illnesses.
The results of squint Loss of binocular vision
and stereopsis are the two main outcomes of
squint, which has both the eyes not being able to
work together as they should to provide depth
perception. There could also be limitation of
the field of vision, which may hinder effective
vision, thus affecting the confidence of the
individual as it affects communication skills
and social interaction.
  • Treating squint
  • Over the past many generations, there was very
    little, almost nothing, that could be done for
    treating squint in adults. However, with the
    advancements of science and technology today,
    even adults having squint can be treated
    effectively. Adults with squint can be treated
    to improve depth perception, the field of vision,
    and the way the two eyes work together. And, as
    a result, it also leads to the individuals
    improved confidence and self-esteem.
  • Types of treatments
  • There are a number of treatment procedures
    available to treat squint. But, the most basic
    and successful treatment for squint includes eye
    muscle surgery. However, some patients may also
    require glasses, prisms, and medications to help.
    Squint repair is not a cosmetic procedure, but a
    reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery can
    alter the appearance, whereas reconstructive
    surgery can change an abnormality to a normal
    one. After surgery, the eyes may need to adjust
    to their new position. This is because a good
    number of patients generally have temporary
    double vision, which can take a few weeks before
    it is resolved. But, certain patients who suffer
    from other medical problems may have a slight
    double vision even after the squint surgery,
    which can require additional treatments like
    using glasses, contact lenses, prisms, patching,
    or having a Botox or Marcaine injection from
    time to time.
  • Glasses/contact lenses Glasses and contact
    lenses can help improve vision by controlling
    eye alignment and eliminating double vision.
  • Prisms Prisms can also help improve vision may
    it be temporary prisms tied as a piece of
    plastic attached to the glasses, or permanent
    prisms ground into the current glasses.

  • Patching A black patch, or a film on glasses or
    contact lenses can help occlude one eye and
    block double vision.
  • Botox injection Botox injections can help make
    the muscles stretched to make it longer and
  • Marcaine injection Marcaine injections can
    stimulate growth of muscles, making them
    stronger and tighter.
  • Depending upon your condition, your doctor will
    decide upon the
  • treatment for you. An effective treatment can
    help eliminate double vision, expand the field
    of vision, improve three- dimensional vision,
    and eliminate abnormal head posture. You can get
    the best kind of treatment at Arohi Eye Hospital,
    where the best squint specialist in Mumbai
    awaits to treat your precious eyes.
