As with most childhood problems, a squint, or “Strabismus” as it is otherwise known, has always been thought to be almost certainly caused either by a nutritional deficiency during the development of the baby in the womb, or damage caused by eating high levels of starchy foods during pregnancy. Also if the child has been given excess starchy foods in his/her formative years.
Although these causes will be contributing factors, Acupressure specialists have now researched further to try to find a more specific and authentic reasons for its cause. Their conclusions confirm that eye squint is manifested as a misalignment due to:
- Lack of coordination among six major eye muscles
- Nerve palsy
- Hypermetropia (long-sightedness)
- Poor vision in one eye due to cataract or cataract susceptibility
- Amblyopia (also known as Lazy Eye)
Acupressure has proven a miraculous treatment for patients suffering from this type of eye problem.
