Is it safe go for squint surgery at 40 years of age?

Q: I am a 40 years old female with squint in both my eyes. My mother was scared of correcting it earlier with an operation. But I would like to correct it now. Till now, I don't have any vision related problems. Can I go for a squint correction surgery at this age?

A:If you have squint, you should have it operated on to correct it at any age and this should correct it cosmetically, however, it is likely that your vision in the squinting eye is likely to be poor in other words a lazy eye. In such a case, the eye may not remain straight for long after the operation. I have seen very good results even after 60 years of age.
