What is Squint (Strabismus)?
Strabismus refers to eyes that are out of alignment. They may be converged, diverged, vertically or even torsional misaligned. Surgery maybe appropriate for constant or intermediate divergence and this is dependent on a number of factors
How often you’re meant to visit the ophthalmologist depends on a number of factors. Depending on age, adults need more frequent visits because with age it is important to keep a regular check on your health. Even school going kids need eye exams to protect their eyesight and also prevent any future health issues.

Correction of squint
At Seedi Eye care centre, we offer the most advanced Squint eye treatment through the latest modality eye surgery which is hassle-free, convenient and a day care procedure. A squint develops when the muscles of the eye do not work in a balanced way and they do not move together in a coordinated manner.
This lack of coordination leads to misalignment. In case of the squint one eye points in the direction the person is actually looking in and the other turns inward, outward or downward. This problem is common among children. Our eye specialist is the best judge and will advise the right treatment for the correction. The earlier the treatment starts the better are the chances for its recovery. The usual treatment includes use of a prism in the spectacles and sometimes surgery also can correct squint. Amblyopia therapy may also need in case of the lazy eye.
Took my grandmother for treatment of her eyes, she had blur vision, the doctor performed eye drop surgery, very comfortable and easy for the patient, good result after surgery, will definitely recommend this doctor
Very caring and concerned doctor I have been following Dr Aysha Nazlin for 2 years now, very good setup and well planned & operated centre
I went to this clinic for swelling of my eye as I couldn't open my eyes and the condition was since 1 week, had been to other hospitals but no sign of progress in treatment, finally had been to seedi eye care centre the very next day I could experience the difference and by 3 days I was fine, Doctor is very friendly and I would definitely prefer this hospital.
Thanks to Dr Ayesha Nazlin and her team, I really liked the experience with the whole process. I didn't have to wait much and the whole staff is really polite and helpful. I would recommend this place. Value for what you pay
