Q: Terminology: Convergent squint or Strabismus
 
A: A convergent squint or strabismus is a failure of the two eyes to look at the same object thereby preventing binocular vision. Human binocular vision develops during the first few years of life. Interruption to the motor, sensory, or CNS components, for example nerve or muscle defect, can lead to sensory or central defect. Causes of many squints are not fully understood although the majority seemed due to hereditary factors. The degree of the stabismus must be determined by a specialist on arrival.
