Title: Cost Of Squint Eye Surgery In India - Arohi Eye Hospital

Squint is the condition of the eyes in which the
muscles of the eye are weak, which is why the
eyeball is forced to focus in a different
direction, while the vision of the health eye is
focused on a central straight path. Generally,
squint is seen in only one eye of an individual.
This means that one of the eyes performs
absolutely fine, with the other eye being
deviated from its normal position. This means
that the affected eye will look upwards,
downwards, inwards, or outwards, but not on the
central focal path. And, it is only rare that
both the eyes of an individual will suffer from
the condition. Whatever the condition, and
whether one or both eyes are affected, there is
nothing to worry, as this problem is easily
What causes squint? There could be one of the two
reasons causing the squint. The most general
reason is the weakness of the eye muscles. But,
another reason could also be the cause behind
the condition, which is weakness in the part of
the brain that controls eye movement.
  • How can squint be treated?
  • The most basic type of treatment given to squint
    patients that are suffering from only a simple
    squint condition, or those who are in the early
    stages of squint, involves the use of eye glasses
    and contact lenses.
  • Other than this, an eye patch may also be
    recommended to cover the healthy eye, so that
    the affected eye if forced to focus on objects,
    thus strengthening its working, and improving
    vision. However, this is a very time consuming
    process, where the patient needs to be extremely
    patient, as the results may show up only in a
    few years time.
  • When nothing else works, or when the squint is in
    a worse stage, or when the patient is looking
    for immediate results, one way to bring the best
    results is squint eye surgery, which helps
    correct the positioning of the eyeball, thus
    correcting the vision.
  • What is squint eye surgery?
  • In the process of squint eye surgery, the muscles
    that move the eye are corrected. The weak
    muscles are tightened to lose suppleness, by
    moving them towards the center of the pupil, thus
    helping to correct the focus of the eyeball.
    This surgery is being practiced for a long time
    now, and with every year, the process is only
    perfected and more equipped, getting a success
    rate of 100. The surgery is safely prescribed
    for both adults as well as children. However, the
    surgery must not be performed on an older aged
    citizen, because the eyes muscles tend to adjust
    to the crooked vision with age, making it very
    difficult to fix them back to normal. It is thus
    recommended to have the surgery done as soon as
    the squint is recognized.
  • NOTE While the surgery is safe for almost
    everyone who undergoes it, an individual
    suffering from high blood pressure or

other health problems is recommended to stick to
eye glass, contact lens, and eye patching
treatment options. Cost of squint eye surgery A
squint eye surgery in India can cost anywhere
between Rs. 25,000 and 1 lakh! The huge
difference can be because of a variety of
factors like the city, the location, the surgeon,
the technology used, and other resources
required for the surgery. You must thus get in
