Hi. My son is 2 years old. He has squint in both eyes. We started the patch treatment. Is it curable? How long it will take to cure? Does operation needed?

1 Doctor Answered
Squint has to be treated as early as possible in early age. Three steps of treatments are there. 1. Glasses if refractive error is there 2. Eye patching 3. Operation. Nothing to worry if it is a simple squint. Need detailed examination.
