Private eye treatment: Botulinum toxin treatment for squint

Private eye treatment: Botulinum toxin treatment for squint

Minimal waiting times and high-quality care at your fingertips with care at Midland Eye Clinic

What is Botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin (BTXA) is a chemical derived from bacteria (Clostridium Botulinum). It is injected into the muscles around the eye to weaken them and change the eye position. Botulinum toxin has been used for squints since 1979 and is an extremely safe and effective way of changing the position of the eyes.

Why should I have Botulinum toxin (BTXA) to treat my squint?
Botulinum toxin is most commonly used as a temporary treatment, but in some cases it can be used repeatedly instead of squint surgery if a formal operation on the muscles would be difficult. This might include patients who have had previous surgery, patients with very small squints, or patients whose condition may spontaneously change so permanent surgery would not be the best treatment at this stage. Sometimes we use botulinum toxin in patients who cannot undergo a general anaesthetic but would still like their squint to be corrected.

Midland Eye is a specialist eye clinic led by the UK’s leading ophthalmology consultant doctors. As a world-class centre of excellence for eye surgery, we focus entirely on the treatment and care of patients with a wide range of eye problems, from common complaints to rare conditions that require treatment not available elsewhere in the UK. Our ophthalmic surgeons are renowned throughout the UK and worldwide for their expertise, knowledge and experience.
