What are the causes of squint in children?A squint is commonly caused by an imbalance in the way the brain controls the eyes. It can also be caused by abnormally high spectacle power, e.g. hyperopia (long-sightedness), or anything that obscures the vision in one eye (e.g. childhood cataracts, droopy eyelids). Occasionally, it may be due to an abnormality of the nerves supporting the eye muscles, or an abnormality in the eye muscles or surrounding tissue within the eye socket.
