A squint, or strabismus, is a medical condition where the eyes do not align properly. In this condition, one of the eyes turns upwards, downwards, inwards, outwards, while the other one focuses on one spot. The condition occurs when the extraocular muscles, muscles that control the movement of the eye, and the eyelid are not working together. Therefore, both the eyes are not able to look at the same spot at the same time.
The disorder also occurs because the brain and the eyes are not able to coordinate correctly.
Some of the types of strabismus are:
There are various different types of strabismus, including a lazy eye.
The following terms are used to describe strabismus by the positions of the eye:
If the strabismus is detected or diagnosed early, then it can lead to effective treatment. However, with the latest technology in hand, strabismus can be treated at any time.
While Squint is fairly obvious from an early age, however, minor Squint may be less noticeable.
At Yashoda hospital, we have advanced technology that can check if the child has developed a squint or not. You should bring your child routinely to the doctor for screening. The physician or optician will medically examine the child, and if the child has Squint, the child will be referred to the ophthalmologists. Before the test is performed, the ophthalmologist will use eye drops that dilate the pupils.
The patient is assessed by performing the Hirschberg test, or Hirschberg corneal reflex test. The ophthalmologist focuses light in the eye and examines where the light reflects from the corneas. The light will go to the center of both corneas if the eyes are well-aligned. If the light does not go to the center of both corneas, then it may mean that the patient has hypertropia, exotropia, esotropia, or hypotropia.
