I am a 29 year old male. My left eye is not entirely blind, but if I watch a powerful light, I just see a low white light. This problem is about 23 years. Is it due to retinal detachment and it has become squint heavily. I repaired my detachment with scleral buckle nine months ago, and it is the same likely previous time. If I want a strabismus surgery now, is it possible? What should be the minimum gap between these two surgeries? Are there any risks of my squint surgery? I have got surgery in my eyes thrice previously. First time for cataract, second time retinal detachment repair with silicon oil and the third time for silicon oil removal. I also have rubber or scleral buckle inside of my eye. Will they get removed during the strabismus surgery? Will strabismus surgery affect my good vision that is, my right eye? If yes, then how long will it take to recover? If the answer no, then please explain me the real reason. I am asking all the above as a second opinion from you before heading to the operation. Thank you.
You can undergo squint correction surgery in your left eye. However, this will purely be a cosmetic surgery. There will be no improvement in your left eye vision. Also, there will be a possibility of recurrence of squint in left eye after surgery, as the eye is almost blind. The scleral buckle has to be removed before squint surgery after taking clearance from the retina surgeon. Both the surgeries can be done in the same setting. The strabismus surgery will not affect your good (right eye) vision.

You have large angle esotropia (90PD) (a form of squint). As per my experience, operating two muscles will reduce the deviation, but will not correct it fully. Read full
I am currently on Enalapril, Aspirin, Lutein Complex (for eyes), Isotine Eye Drop, and urea and blood test are normal ... To improve your vision, I suggest you take Phyllanthus niruri (gale of the wind) and Aegle marmelo Read full
