Dear Dr Anand‎

Can donated eye/s from a eye donor help in treating squint in later stages of life for a patient suffering from squint eye defect ?. i.e. Replacing the defected eye/s with the eyes donated from eye donor surgery ?.

Can there be success rate with patients suffering from squint
defect after doing surgery getting eye/s from eye banks / hospitals ?.  

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Dear Prashant,

Donated eyes only help in corneal diseases. Squint is a condition where there is an alignment issue within the muscles. This needs to be corrected at an early age for optimal results. In adults squint treatment involves surgery, only when it has benefits or an aesthetic valuse.

I assume that your primary question is related to squint?
Then, this has nothing to do with eye donation.

However, the converse can be true...which is Can a person with squint donate their eyes? answer is Yes!
