Squint Surgery and its benefits

Squint surgical procedure is a very common eye correction operation that involves tightening or moving one or more position of the eye muscles in the exterior part of the eyes. Squint surgery in Kolkata is performed by experienced and skilled eye surgeons helping patients control their eye movement for proper alignment of the eyes. Eyes have in total of six extra ocular muscles that are responsible for controlling the eye movements.

Squint surgeries performed at the best eye clinic in Hooghly assure full recovery and the eyes are aligned the natural way.

What are the different types of glaucoma?

As per the provider of best eye care in Howrah glaucoma is of several types, and among all the types' open-angle and angle-closer is mainly observed in patients. Other types of glaucoma include -

  • Congenital glaucoma
  • It is mainly found in children born with a defect in the angle of the eye leading to slowly stopping the normal expulsion of eye fluid. The patients only have visible symptoms such as sensitivity to light, cloudy eyes, and excessive flow of tears.

  • Low-tension glaucoma
  • The optic nerve is damaged in this type of glaucoma even though the intraocular pressure (IOP) is low. A decrease in eye pressure can be maintained by 30 percent by administering medicines that slow the disease.

  • Open-angle and angle-closer glaucoma
  • In open-angle glaucoma, the eye's drainage canals get clogged by the aging process, and the inner eye pressure increase as the right amount of fluid does not drain out of the eyes.
