Strabismus, more commonly known as squint, occurs mainly in children due to a variety of reasons. It can be caused as a result of any disorder in that part of the brain which is in charge of controlling the functions and movements of the eyes. Sometimes, strabismus is also caused due to hereditary reasons, weakness in eye muscles, cataract and complications of the optic nerve. It has also been observed that eyes with poor vision are more vulnerable to strabismus. If you are willing to opt for a strabismus treatment, you will need a comprehensive eye checkup first. In the case of kids, this becomes particularly difficult as they are not able to be patient for a long time, which requires them to be sedated. In the case of overactive children, the eye surgeons often chooses to let them sleep under general anaesthesia so that the eyes can be tested accurately without disturbing the child. The strabismus treatment may include anything from patching to eyeglasses, from eye drops to eye exercises to surgery. The refractive errors of the eyes can be considerably improved with spectacles, but in order to make the treatment effective, it is crucial to wear the glasses during most of the waking time. It is quite obvious that a child would not be able to understand the importance of wearing the glasses and therefore, it is up to the parents to ensure that their kids are constantly wearing the spectacles.
