A myth that “A squint is the symbol of good luck” goes on running in the mind of everyone. Same was in the case of Mr. Gaurav Sinha 30 year’s young male a civil engineer by profession and a resident of a small village in Solapur. He had a deviation of his eyes since birth. He grew up with his deviated eyes, by feeling that they will get normal as days passes. In villages generally, no one cares for a squint (A condition in which both eyes does not look together in the same direction) as they consider it to be good luck.
What is Squint?
Squint also is known as Strabismus. It is a condition that arises because of an incorrect balance of the muscles that move the eye. Or one can say it is a condition in which eyes do not look in the same direction.
Mr. Gaurav shifted From Solapur to Mumbai in search of a job and he got an opportunity in Navi Mumbai. He was a hard worker and was considered to be very professional. The one thing that disturbed him was his eyes. He uses to feel very awkward for the misalignment of his eyes. One of his colleagues said him that he can get his squint corrected, which sounded exciting for him and soon he decided to get his squint corrected.
Mr. Gaurav went through the website and searched for the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai wherein he went through the web pages of Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada, Navi Mumbai. Before you know it, he had booked an appointment for himself at the hospital.
As Mr. Gaurav reached AEHI, his eyes routine evaluation was done in the Optometry department in various eye machines. Later on, he was referred to Dr. Prachi Agashe, Squint Specialist at AEHI, who examined his eyes and advised for squint evaluation which showed that Mr. Gaurav had a weakness of muscles in his eyes.
Dr. Prachi Agashe went a step ahead and explained him about the eye operation for correction of squint. She then operated on his eyes by straightening and realigning muscles in the eyes, and she did the squint correction.
