Pills of knowledge in Ophthalmology- Squint and refractive errors

1.A refractive error should be thoroughly assessed prior to surgical squint correction or the squint may recur.

2. Divergent squint occurs in myopes as the divergent system of muscles is more active during far vision. So, the far vision in myopes being hampered, the eyes try to diverge more.

3. Same goes for hypermetropes. They end up with a convergent squint if left uncorrected.

-That's all!
