Abstract


Strabismus, is one of the most common ocular problems in children. It can be treated with conservative therapy such as glasses, prisms, patching and/or orthoptic exercises, with a majority of the cases eventually requiring correction with eye muscle surgery. The benefits of surgical correction include elimination of diplopia, restoration of binocular single vision, and improvement of cosmesis and psychosocial status. However, some reports in the past two decades have indicated the possibility of good surgical outcomes, and significant improvements of central and peripheral binocular visual function even in adult patients. The aim of this present study is to determine the prevalence of squinted eyes with previous squint surgery in patients attend the squint outpatient clinic.
