The medical term for squint is 'strabismus'.Strabismus or squint is recognised as a side effect of Ritalin.Other visual disturbances may also occur.Your son has had a squint before as a side effect of Ritalin and this went away once he wore glasses. Hopefully his present squint will again disappear with time. Your son should be off Ritalin as it is no use risking his eyesight so that he can use this medicine. It would be best to get the opinion of a paediatric neurologist.This opinion is essential before you can even consider any eye surgery.
