World class strabismus treatment - right on your doorstep

How strabismus is treated

Once a squint has been detected by the patient themselves, or during an elective eye examination, it can be treated in a variety of ways, depending upon the nature, severity and type of condition identified.

Glasses and prisms of the appropriate strength and applied to existing spectacles, can be prescribed to correct the misalignment. Furthermore, Botox injections administered directly into the appropriate eye muscle under local anaesthetic can straighten eyes.

In many cases your eye surgeon will recommend eye surgery to correct a strabismus by adjusting the strength of the eye muscles in order to straighten the eye. This reconstructive surgery is usually undertaken as a day case procedure under general anaesthetic, although it can also be undergone with just a local anaesthetic.
