Squint, otherwise known as strabismus, is a misalignment of the eyes.
This condition occurs in approximately 4% of the UK population. It can affect people at any age, but it is commonly found in children.
One or both eyes may turn inwards (crossed-eyes), outward, turn up or turn down.
This type of strabismus may be normal. However, it is advisable to have your child’s eyes checked at Eye Clinic London, especially if the eye is drifting outwards.
Before the age of 6 months, a child’s ability to fix is not established, and so it might be common to see some form of strabismus.
