Squint or strabismus is a common condition that usually occurs in young children before they reach preschool age. According to Patient, an online health platform, it affects about 1 in 20 children in the U.K. A squint develops when the child’s eye muscles don’t work together properly in a way that prevents the eyes from looking in the same direction.
