Hi.. The squint could have occured because of disuse.. Though not normal, it would't cause any other problem..

welcome to healthcaremagic portal
this type of squint can occur where there is loss of vision.the eyesight can not be restored but the squint can be surgically cured..Even if squint surgery was done previously it can be corrected again.In such cases the surgery is required for the other eye

you have lost your vision in LE that means you are now having one eye with have not mentioned what surgeries have been done in sankar.If EARLIER NO SQUINT SURGERY HAS BEEN DONE THEN CHANCES ARE THERE that we can do squint surgey in LE for cosmetic purpose but there are high chances of again squinting of eye after 5-6 you can have squint free time of 5-6 years only.
