Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Your child's squint problem can be treated in a number of ways and often more than one treatment or a combination of treatments may be needed to get the best result for your child's vision.
  • Your child's squint treatment will be depend on the type of squint. Most of the treatment for squint involves regular visits and examinations at the hospital or eye clinic.
  • The most common ways that squint can be treated are glasses, occlusion therapy, eye exercises,  surgery and injections.
  • The outcomes for children with squint are generally very effective if detected and treated early. If it gets detected later than 7-8 years, then it is difficult to correct.
  • I would suggest you to consult a good eye surgeon and follow up with him.
