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.
- This is the most common form of squint. Squint Surgery is the only corrective measure & should be done at earliest.
- All squint surgeries should be performed below the age of 5 years when brain is developing & binocular vision is developing.
- When the angle of squint is more than 30 prism dioptres surgery will be required on both the eyes.
- We have facility for general anaesthesia at our Borivali centre.
