Experts in Squint Treatment
Highly experienced doctors with expertise in treating Glaucoma and Cataract.
Squint (Strabismus) also called a cross or lazy eye is a condition where your eyes are not properly aligned with each other for a variety of reasons. One or both eyes turn in, out, up or down. It is a misalignment of the visual axes of two eyes.
Binocular vision and coordination of eye movements are not present at birth but are acquired in early childhood. The process starts after birth and by and large gets completed by 5-6 years.
If left untreated, the brain will eventually disregard the image from the squinting eye in time. The ignored eye will not function normally and will be less used than the other eye causing the vision in that eye to dramatically decrease.
Treatment of crossed eyes includes:
• Surgery depending on the individual case.
• Synoptophore exercise
• Synoptophore exercises and surgery
Dr J.J.Praveen is an expert in providing necessary treatments and surgeries to re-align squint eyes for people of all ages. It is recommended to conduct a surgery before 5-6 years of age to have a strong potential to restore binocular vision.
However, if the misalignment crosses the age of 8, cosmetic improvement can be done to realign the pupils. Even old people can be operated without any problems.
Don’t let squint become an obstacle to your future, squint is treatable.
