Eye seems to be turning out after squint surgery as a child


I had corrective squint surgery when I was a child but I think my eye is turning out in the opposite direction. Is there something the optician can do about this?

Answer Written answer:

There might be. It depends on your represcription. It may be help by altering the power or perhaps eye exercises. As a last resort another operation may be considered. See what your optometrist recommends.


We recommend you seek professional advice if you are concerned about your eye health:
