Squint in the eye

Q: My 13 year old son has a partial squint in one of his eyes which is not evident all the time. Our doctor has suggested to undergo surgery to rectify this problem. I want to know if surgery is the right treatment and what are the chances of success. Also if it will recurr later again.

A:I think your son is having a type of intermittent squint. This type of squint normally is not always visible and most of the time it does not adversely affect the development of the visual system. Surgery definitely will cure the squint. However in about 20% of cases it might recur at a later age. We advise you to consult some good squint specialist of your city and it will be wise to follow his advice.
