Answer
Dear Prashant,

Squint is an eye condition where both eyes of a patient do not coordinate. This can be due to neurological, over accommodation or eye muscle problem.

This can be corrected either by corrective glasses, exercise or surgery depending on the case and causes.
Cornea (front transparent covering ) can only be used from a donor`s eye.
