More Information on Squint Surgery

Indication

The procedure is recommended when any of the following symptoms cannot be corrected with usage of glasses or medical treatment:

  • Crossed eyes
  • Double vision
  • Misalignment of eyes
  • Uncoordinated eye movements (eyes do not move together)
  • Loss of perception of depth

Pre-Procedure

The doctor may recommend the following:

  • A thorough physical exam and routine tests.
  • Fasting for 8 to 10 hours prior to the surgery

During-Procedure

The procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia by an experienced eye surgeon. It generally takes 40 to 60 minutes to perform the surgery.

During the procedure, the surgeon will follows these steps

  • Lid lid speculum is used to keep the eyelids open and eyes in position.
  • An incision is made in the transperant tissue called conjuctiva to access the eye muscles and isolate the muscles.
  • Eye muscles are re-adjusted according to the doctor's assessment.
  • After this, they are sewn in place with dissolvable stitches.

Post-Procedure

After the procedure is complete, the patient may return home on the same day. Generally, the operated eye will be red for a couple of days after the surgery. Eye redness is expected to fade completely in 2 to 3 weeks.

Double vision and light sensitivity are commonly experienced after the procedure. The vision will become normal in 5 to 7 days.

Some patients may experience a noticable variation in moving eyes for a couple of days, as the brain learns to control the eye movements.

The doctor will recommend to use eye drops as advise and avoid contact with any chemicals (like soap, shampoo, chorine).

Risk and Complication

Although a relatively safe procedure, strabismus surgery can cause the following complications:

  • Persistent severe pain in the eyes
  • Reduction in vision
  • Persistent bleeding and discomfort
  • Infection
  • Misalignment of eyes in opposite direction, in rare cases
