Ans-

Only 20-25% children with cerebral palsy have perfectly normal eyes.
40% of children have refractory errors ie have need of glasses
Squint is found in over 50% children with cerebral palsy ie the axis of the eye is deviated ,considering only 2-3% of normal children have such a problem this is obviously a very high percentage
nystagmus or constantly moving eye was found in 16% ,more in dystonic or ataxic patients
most children who can follow instructions will benefit with prisms and corrective excercises,if this doesn’t help then surgery is the only option
Taking into consideration the age of the patient, the strabismus /squint surgery targets different things. In preschool children, we operate aiming the recovery of the binocular vision, while in children over ten years old, the surgery is done only for cosmetic reasons.

the key to betterment usually lies in quicker diagnosis, see a good ophthalmologist as soon as your child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy
