Squint, medically known as Strabismus, is a condition where the motion of the eyes is not synchronised and the eyes point in a different direction, mostly opposite to each other. Squint eye surgery is a common process to treat squint. In this process muscles inside and outside of the eyes are tightened and the normal motion of the eyes is restored.

Squint eye surgery becomes extremely important when the eye show no response to the exercises and medications. The surgery works best for children and infants with delicate eyes. The surgery changes the position of the eye muscles. After the surgery, both the eyes focus on the same point at the same time.
Steps to take before the procedure
The doctor may run a few tests to ensure the patient is in optimum health to undergo the procedure. All the instructions about the food intake, post-surgery care, and medications are given at this stage.
What happens during the procedure?
The surgery is performed under the effect of anaesthesia. After the anaesthesia has taken effect, eyelids are opened and problematic muscles are identified. Small incisions are made in the conjunctiva (a thin layer of white tissues lying over the muscles). The eye muscles are then separated or removed from their original position and attached to a new position so that there are no signs of squint eye when the muscles heal. These muscles are attached with stitches which dissolve on their own when the eye heals.
After the surgery, a pad will be put on the eyes for a day. The eye may feel sore for a few days and the patient might have itchy or red eyes, and double vision, but these conditions last generally for a week. Your doctor will also prescribe certain medication to relieve the conditions.
