Lazy Eye Correction /Squint Surgery

Strabismus is a condition where the eyes are not properly aligned, causing one eye to point in a different direction than the other. This can lead to double vision, impaired depth perception, and an abnormal head posture.

There are three types of strabismus: convergent, divergent, and vertical.

Squint surgery, also known as strabismus surgery, is a procedure that aims to correct the misalignment of the eyes. It is typically performed on children, but adults may also undergo the surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision in the tissue covering the eye and adjusts the eye muscles by removing or reattaching them.

Dissolvable stitches are used to allow for minor adjustments to be made while the patient is awake. The goal of squint surgery is to improve three-dimensional vision and eliminate double vision.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does Strabismus Surgery entail?

The surgical procedure for strabismus involves relocating the eye muscles to align both eyes in the same direction.

When is the ideal time for Strabismus Surgery?

Strabismus surgery can be performed on infants as young as four months old and is a viable option for older children and adults. Early intervention is recommended as the brain’s visual system is most adaptable in young children.

What happens if Strabismus is not treated?

If left untreated, strabismus can cause permanent vision loss in one eye due to amblyopia or “lazy eye.” False strabismus or “pseudostrabismus” can also cause misaligned-looking eyes but does not require treatment.

What is Amblyopia?

Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is a condition that arises when a weak or wandering eye results in reduced vision in one eye. It can lead to permanent vision loss if left untreated.

Is it too late to correct Strabismus?

No, it is not too late to treat strabismus. Although commonly thought of as a childhood issue, lazy eye can be treated in adults too.

What are the precautions to take before Strabismus Surgery?

Before the surgery, avoid food and drink after midnight. Do not wear eye makeup on the day of the procedure. Apply ice to your eyelids every hour when awake during the first 24 hours after surgery.

How many surgeries are necessary to correct Strabismus?

Most adult patients can be successfully treated with one surgical procedure, with around 80% of patients achieving satisfactory alignment.

What are the risks of Strabismus Surgery?

Partial or complete failure to correct the condition and related symptoms, such as double vision, are the most common risks of strabismus surgery.

Can you open your eyes after Strabismus Surgery?

Mild swelling may occur after the surgery, but the patient should be able to open their eyes within a day or so. If swelling increases significantly, contact your doctor immediately.

Do you need glasses after Strabismus Surgery?

Glasses may be worn immediately after the surgery, but there is usually no significant change to the prescription. If glasses with prism are used before surgery, glasses without prism should be worn immediately afterward.

What activities should be avoided after Strabismus Surgery?

It is advisable to avoid heavy lifting, contact sports, and activities that may expose the eyes to dirt or sand for two weeks after surgery. Sleeping with your head elevated on two to three pillows for five to seven days may help reduce pain and swelling. There are no restrictions on reading or watching television.

How should you shower after Strabismus Surgery?

It is safe to take a shower or bath 24 hours after the surgery, but avoid water contact with your face for a week. Use a clean, damp washcloth to clean your face for the first week after the procedure.
