 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My daughter has a squint. Her doctor has told her to start wearing spectacles, but they haven't really helped. Kindly suggest some good ophthalmologist hospitals in Srinagar.

Saeed (Srinagar, India)

A: You will have to refer to the yellow pages for the ophthalmologist in your area. I suggest you look into this matter as soon as possible. Squints can be corrected with a minor surgery.

Dr. Subba Rao

Q: My daughter has squint eyes. Can squint eyes be fully cured? Is operation of her eyes the only treatment available today? At what age should her treatment be started? Please do give me your valuable advice.

Twisha (Delhi, India)

A: Squint eyes in infants can be normal up to the age of 6 months. Any squint persisting beyond that age should be seen by an eye surgeon as soon as possible so take your daughter to an eye surgeon immediately. Depending on the type of the squint, the treatments vary. Some squints need surgery, and if the eye surgeon feels a surgery is necessary, it should be done without delay, otherwise, the brain will start to ignore the images from the squint eye, and the eye will eventually go blind.
