Strabismus is called the usually permanent, sometimes transient abnormal position of the eyes in which the eye globes focus in different places. It is known that more than a million people suffer only in Germany.
Strabismus is not only an aesthetic disadvantage but is almost always accompanied by reduced functional capacity of the eyes.
How does squint affects vision?
An important condition for proper perception of space is the focus of both eyes in exactly the same direction. This is how the same image is represented in both eyes, which differs little; these images merge into the brain and the three-dimensional perception arises; in squint, the difference between the two images is large and the brain is no longer able to merge them; this results in diplopia; in children the image perceived by the “strabismus eye” simply rejects something that results in loss of vision, so-called amblyopia.
Amblyopia is called the weakness – loss of vision in an otherwise healthy eye. Without treatment it develops in about 90% of children with strabismus. If not diagnosed and treated immediately the damage is irreversible. The child can no longer learn to see correctly, binoculars and 3D. Immediate treatment can eliminate the above and develop 3D vision.

B – In the right-sided converging squint looks at the right eye to the left of the cube.
