I doubt squint eye. Whether squint eye is hereditary, and is there any treatment for these?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Squint eyes are the eyes which are not appropriately aligned, each eye focus on a different object and send signals to the brain leading to confusion. Thus the child starts ignoring signs coming from squint eye (deviated eye) resulting in amblyopia or lazy eye. It has to be aggressively treated in childhood or else cannot be processed once development occurs. Treatment is surgical, in some minor cases, prism spectacles. The exact cause is not known either developmental or hereditary. The treatment has to be done as soon as possible.
