Ingoing Squint From Birth

Ingoing Squint From Birth

An ingoing squint that develops before 6 months may be congenital esotropia. It may be associated with one eye moving above the other (dissociated vertical deviation) and wobbly eyes (latent nystagmus).

 

Evidence suggests that surgery should be performed between 12 and 24 months of age in order to attempt to develop 3 dimensional (3D) vision. This may be botulinum toxin injection or conventional surgery. Often 2-3 operations are required particularly with early surgery. Upgoing squint surgery may be needed.
