ESOTROPIA

ACCOMODATIVE ESOTROPIA– usually develops after the age of 6 month. Gets corrected completely by glasses. If the glasses are not worn at early stage, surgery will be required for full correction of esotropia.

NONOACCOMODATIVE ESOTROPIA – usually present at birth & requires operation.

EXOTROPIA

  1. This is the most common form of squint. Squint Surgery is the only corrective measure & should be done at earliest.
