What is Squint?
A squint occurs when your eyes don’t point in the same direction. The most common type of squint is where one eye turns slightly inwards, towards your nose. Sometimes the eye may turn out or – very occasionally –up or down, while the other looks ahead. This can happen in either eye. If a young child has a squint it is important that they are examined by an optometrist to help prevent the eye that does not look straight from becoming lazy.
