1. myopia or nearsightedness is the common refractive error seen in children, and yours is no exception, and thus in order to see distant objects clearly the child has to put strain on his/her eyes to focus better resulting in Squint.
2. astigmatism which is abnormality in cornea can result in association with mypoia/hypermetropia if the condition goes on worsening.
3. any symptoms of headache/eye strain or eye fatigue you noticed?
4. In Ayurveda, apart from herbal treatment we have specific panchkarma procedures related to eye which helps in improving eye sight and lessening the chances of developing squint.
