STRABISMUS is the medical term for a squint – not the Clint Eastwood squint, but a condition where the eyes point in different directions. In other words, strabismus is misalignment of the eyes.
Often, one eye turns inward (convergent squint) or outward (divergent squint). In fewer cases, one eye may turn up or down (vertical squint). The squint may be present all the time (constant) or only at certain times (intermittent).
