HOW DOES SQUINT TREATMENT WORK?
The treatment will depend on the type of squint you have, after a specialist consultation and examination the Consultant will discuss the options with you. Treatments can include prisms; these are a special type of lens used to help get rid of double vision in small squints. Botox injection can sometimes be given to help make the eyes look straight. Surgery can also be done to make the eyes straight, and this can often be a more permanent solution.
Often squints may need to be examined on more than one occasion to make sure they are not changing.
Mr Muen is a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of squints. If you would like to discuss the options available to you, then please arrange a consultation.
