A squint, or strabismus, is a condition in which the eyes do not align properly. One eye turns inwards, upwards, downwards, or outwards, while the other one focuses at one spot. It can happen all the time or intermittently.
This usually occurs because the muscles that control the movement of the eye and the eyelid, the extraocular muscles, are not working together.
As a result, both eyes are unable to look at the same spot at the same time.
It can also happen because a disorder in the brain means that the eyes cannot correctly coordinate.
