Our whole visual system is controlled by a series of muscles. The eyes are ‘engineered’ to work in parallel, with each eye recording a slightly different picture.

    A squint is an imbalance between the two eyes where they look in different directions. Some people call this condition ‘crossed eyes’, but this may be inaccurate – for instance, if a patient has a divergent squint. In most cases, one eye will look straight while the other eye is pointing in a different direction. The misalignment may be constant or may appear at intervals.

    A cataract is a condition where the lens of the eye (the clear membrane through which light passes) becomes clouded. Such clouding prevents a sharp and clear image from being received by the retina. As a result, your vision becomes blurred. Most cataracts are related to ageing. In fact, in the USA more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. While a cataract can occur in either or both eyes, it cannot spread from one eye to the other.

    Apart from ageing, other factors can lead to cataracts: suffering from certain diseases such as diabetes; smoking or drinking alcohol to excess, and having prolonged exposure to sunlight without UV protection.
