What is the treatment squints?
Q: I am a 36 years old man having a squint in the right eye (lazy eye). How is a squint operated? Does it require anaesthesia? Do I need to keep my eyes closed for a few days after the operation? Will the surgery cure my problem permanently? Is there any kind of risk in this operation?
A:Squint in adult can be operated under local anaesthesia depending on the patient.
The eye (s) may be patched for 12 hours (overnight) following surgeries based on the type of squint and the correction required, the eye muscle attachments are moved forwards or behind.
Repeat surgery is a possibility following any squint surgery and should be discussed with the surgeon. There are many government and private hospitals that deal with squints. He should consider consulting a strabismologist (or squint specialist).
