Strabismus (sometimes also called as “squint eyes” or “cross eyes”) means misalignment of the eyes. This makes it difficult or impossible for the brain to use the information from the two eyes together normally. Some children with strabismus (squint eyes) develop amblyopia (lazy eyes). Strabismus can also interfere with normal binocular vision. In India, ophthalmologist population ratio counts 1: 25,000. Hence this issue is neglected due to treatment back lock in cataract and major eye diseases. So, this situation necessitated and urged the education and rehabilitation professionals to identify the children with strabismus and children at risk for strabismus at earlier stage per se. Hence, a study is planned in the educational setting using indigenous techniques and devices. The present research study entitled encompasses primarily to identify the strabismic children at Coimbatore district and provide them clinical reference.
