Squint refers to a phenomenon of a misalignment between two eyes, resulting in each of the eyes pointing to in different directions, so while one might be focusing on one object, the other might be pointed in a completely different direction.
The frequency for this is not consistent and it varies from individual to individual. For some, it may be a constant factor, whereas for others it might be an occasional incident. This is commonly witnessed in children (owing to weak eyesight) but can be found in some adults too.
However, it is worth noting that as adults this occurs due to tertiary causes and is not directly related to a deficiency in the eye itself. These can include factors such as trauma, extended periods being spent in front of a computer, lesions occurring in the brain.
Recommended by the ophthalmologists, regular practice of eye exercises may help in aligning eyes in some cases. The vision therapy exercises are customized according to the needs of the patient. Squint eye exercises under vision treatment are only advised after a thorough eye examination.
These exercises aim to improve eye coordination and to delay the need for any surgery. These can be done at home.
