Squint in Children

see also Squint

Not usually apparent until child is three months old, often associated with short sight or long sight in one eye, which becomes lazy; usually correctable if treated early enough. Squint may be constant or it may come and go; usually the child does not see double, unlike someone who develops a squint in later life.

medical doctor will refer child to an ophthalmologist to discover the cause; usually the good eye is patched, forcing the child to use the lazy one; if this does not achieve normal coordination, an operation may be necessary. In very rare cases, a squint may be a sign of retinoblastoma (see Cancer, a malignant tumour of the retina).
