What can be done to help my child’s squint?

Your child's squint can be treated in a number of ways and often more than one treatment or a combination of treatments may be needed to get the best result for your child's vision. How your child's squint is treated will depend on the type of squint they have. Most treatment for squints is on-going and usually involves regular hospital visits and examinations for a number of years.

Some of the most common ways that squint can be treated include:

  • Glasses
  • Occlusion therapy (patching)
  • Exercises
  • Surgery
  • Injections
