Q.

Squint Eye

Hi Professor,

My maid''s daughter has a squint left eye. The local government hospital is without electricity for 6 weeks, so I don''t want to send her there. What would be my first port of call - an optician?

Thank you.

This is not usually an emergencyunless this little girl's squint has suddenly appeared, so you should wait until the eye specialist comes there again.
