Squint Eye Treatment in Dubai

Learn more about about the most effective strabismus treatment, surgery and other correction methods.

A squint (medical term strabismus) refers to a condition where an individual’s eyes point in different directions. One of the eyes may look up, down or sideways while the other eye looks straight ahead. This misalignment can distort one’s visual perception. It can also affect one’s personal and professional life. When left untreated, strabismus can lead to serious vision problems. Patients who sought help from our squint specialists in Dubai at the first sign of the condition were able to benefit from early treatment.

Adults can acquire the condition due to certain medical issues, head trauma or a side effect of an operation. But a squint commonly occurs in early childhood. What makes it worrying for parents is that strabismus at an early age does not only cause vision problems. It can also affect the overall learning and development of the child.

The risk of related complications also reduces significantly with timely professional intervention. When you book a consultation with us for squint eye treatment in Dubai, you will be asked to undergo some diagnostics tests. In consultation with your eye doctor, a treatment plan will be developed according to your specific needs.

Early intervention and cataract treatment in our Dubai clinic using state-of-the-art technologies and techniques, can minimize the risk of permanent vision problems.


Strabismus - Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best treatment for strabismus (squint)?

Strabismus correction may include the following treatment approaches:

  • Performing eye exercises designed for better control of eye muscle movement.
  • Wearing a patch over the unaffected eye.
  • Wearing eyeglasses as prescribed by the doctor.
  • Getting injections that help the eyes align better.
  • Undergoing strabismus surgery, for cases where all the other methods have been unable to produce sufficient results.
Can squint be treated with specialized glasses?

We often recommend strabismus surgery in Dubai as a last option. Depending on the severity of the case, the doctor may prescribe glasses for strabismus fitted with a unique kind of lens specifically designed for cross-eye correction and squint correction. This type of lens usually features a prism structure that enables the glasses to control the light that enters the eye. The corrective glasses method has been known to significantly reduce misdirected gazes and, in some cases, cure the condition for the long term.

What are alternative treatment options for a squint (strabismus)?

Aside from strabismus glasses, other methods of correction include eye exercises, vision therapy, medication and surgery. Contacts for strabismus may also be prescribed to older children with active lifestyles.
