1. any problem of double vision?
2. squint in children improve or reduces on its own, and because it is a kind of refractive error thus wearing glasses can correct the problem to some extent.
3. constant observation and Reviewing him periodically will decide the outcome.
4. In the mean time start with saptamrit lauha,trifla ghrita and tratak karma after consulting with an Ayurveda Physician.

Welcome to healthcaremagic
There is separate branch in Ayurveda for eyes called Shalakya (ENT). Ayurveda has addressed eye problems and treatment well. But these things are not in actual practice and you should do with experienced hand only. There are few Ayurvedic treatment with Panchakarma and Herbal Medicines. For that you have to visit Ayurveda specialist.

Squint in small children often reduces on its own. The fact that he has a refractive error. He needs to wear glasses, many times squint gets corrected by weraing glasses. Review after 6mnths - 1 year will decide if surgery is required. Intermeittent squint may not be an indication for early surgery as childs vision will be good, still one may need surgery to develop Binocular Vision

It is good that you are under treatment of highly efficient doctors and one must abide by their advise. Over activity before electronic gadget also contribute to such problems and kids who are choosy about diet and donot accept balanced diet land in such problems like myopia. As far as squint or astigmatism is concerned many a time it calls for surgey. I would advice you to add sapt amrit loh till your next appointment and let us hope he improves.
