I have squint eyes, please check the attached picture. I am 24 years old, and I started wearing glasses when I was 16. I do not think I had squint before I started wearing glasses. Please suggest some exercise to reduce squint or tell me what will be best for me. I have -3 power with cylindrical power in both eyes.

LASIK will not help with squint correction. You can try using contact lens and assess if squint is controlled. I hope this helps.
