You are having exotropia that is your eyes are going outside.Sometime squint reoccur even after surgery & only wearing glasses will not help.You have not mentioned what is your vision in both eyes.Squint really causes social problem which you are facing so it is good to consult a squint specialist and go as per his advice

take care

Thanks for query,
It is curable but you have to go for surgery second time.
Consult your ophthalmologist and discuss with him.
Ok and bye.

Dear ,
You need to be operated again , as the problem that you have can always recur , and as you were operated long back coming back of squint is a possibility . Can see a squint spl again.
