Eye Diseases

Squint

Intermittent or constant, this deficiency takes place because eyes get misaligned, in different directions. Usually, the eyes are supported and held by 6muscles, but in case of squint, the stronger muscle pulls the eye towards it, and it can be inward or outward. The reasons can be varied, like heredity, nerves defect, poor vision or defect of eye muscles. This disorder can happen at any age, but empirically, studies have cited, they happen in infants and young children.

Adjustable Suture Strabismus Surgery
With adjustable suture eye muscle surgery, your surgeon adjusts sutures holding eye muscles in place after a resection procedure, to attempt to improve your final outcome.
   
Strabismus surgery corrects alignment of the eye muscles.

Generally this surgery is possible only in adults, with perhaps only a small percentage able to benefit. This surgery is probably best for someone in whom strabismus developed in adulthood after previously normal eye alignment. In this case, the person is a good candidate because of fusion potential — the ability of both eyes to "lock on" to a target simultaneously, resulting in stereovision and a high degree of depth perception.

In this case, the person is a good candidate because of fusion potential — the ability of both eyes to "lock on" to a target simultaneously, resulting in stereovision and a high degree of depth perception. In most cases, adjustable suture surgery is performed in the operating room, with general or local anesthesia. Afterward the eye is patched. About four to 24 hours later, the patch is removed in the office, when anesthesia and sedation have faded. Ocular alignment is then evaluated.

Based on how your eyes are aligned, your surgeon may decide to use the suture that is in place to tighten or loosen the treated muscle. This adjustment may cause slight discomfort, primarily with muscle tightening. Once the desired alignment is achieved, the surgeon ties the adjustable suture permanently in place, and the procedure is complete.
