Squint = strabismus,: Misalignment of the eyes that can be caused by disruption of any site along the neuromuscular pathway of the eyes & some other causes.

May help: Ambliopia is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision. It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. ...Read more

See an eye care provider with experience in this area to be evaluated. ...Read more
