1 Day Procedure
Before squint surgery, the ophthalmologist or eye doctor will use eye drops to dilate the pupils. Then, the Hirschberg Test or Hirschberg Corneal Reflex Test is performed to assess the eye muscles of a strabismus patient. The examination involves shining a light in the eye to observe where the light reflects from the corneas.
If the corneas are well-aligned, the light reaches the center of the cornea. If it doesn’t, the results will show whether the patient has exotropia, hypertropia, esotropia, or hypotropia. More than one type of strabismus can also occur in the patient.
In earlier stages, glasses or vision therapy is used to address squinting. If these treatments are not effective, squint surgery is recommended for the patient.
The surgery is performed using general anesthesia and takes less than an hour. It is done on an outpatient basis where the patient is discharged on the same day. During the surgery-
In some adults and teens, further adjustment of the eye muscles is required to correct the alignment.

Squint surgery is safe to be performed on patients of all age groups. The surgery gives the best results when performed on children by 6 years of age. With age, the condition progresses and causes vision problems in the affected eye. Still, the condition can be successfully treated without any age limit.
In rare cases, strabismus may return even after surgical treatment. The risk of recurrence differs for each patient. And it is very difficult to predict the recurrence rate. The recurrence usually happens when the squint was firstly caused by a brain problem. Due to this, the brain may again let the eyes drift in different directions, resulting in recurrence.
