When "patch test" is recommended for intermittent exotropia? My doctor said that I have no squint by performing "cover test" is "cover test" is enough to say that I have no squint? When I see my own eye in mirror for 20 seconds approx my eyes starts slightly deviating outward but squint specialist said that I have no squint. Whatever I see is illusion or doctor failed to catch my squint?
