Squint, also known as strabismus, is a condition where the eyes do not align properly. One eye may turn inward, outward, upward, or downward while the other eye looks straight ahead. This misalignment can occur all the time or intermittently. Squint is particularly common in young children but can also affect adults. Early treatment is crucial as untreated squint can lead to further complications such as amblyopia (lazy eye), where the brain starts to ignore signals from the misaligned eye, leading to permanent vision problems.

There are different types of squint, including convergent squint (esotropia) where one eye turns inward, divergent squint (exotropia) where one eye turns outward, and paralytic squint where the squint is caused by a paralysis of an eye muscle. The exact cause of a squint is not always known, but it can be related to issues such as refractive errors (problems with focusing), genetic factors, or conditions affecting the brain or nerves.

Diagnosis and treatment of squint involve a comprehensive eye examination by specialists such as orthoptists, optometrists, and ophthalmologists. Treatment options include glasses to correct refractive errors, eye exercises to strengthen the muscles controlling eye movement, surgery to adjust the muscles so that the eyes align properly, and in some cases, injections into the eye muscles.
