There is no ideal age limit for skin surgery. Usually is the squint surgery is being performed only for cosmetic reasons. It is usually done at 18 years or above. Although your eye doctor will assess and advise you if the surgery is required or not.

Squint surgery is an extra ocular procedure and considered to be relatively safe. The primary aim of this surgery is cosmesis.
Squint surgery readjusts your eye muscles to give you a straight vision and appearance. It is possible to develop a minor deviation in your eyes after 10 to 15 years. Repeat surgery may be required in certain cases.
Yes, absolutely. Squint surgery can be performed at any age.
As per our current knowledge, there is no Ayurvedic medicine available to correct squint or prevent it from happening.
Antioxidants that are very important for eye care also help avoid squint like vitamin C-rich food - tangerines, oranges, tomatoes, lemons. Omega 3 fatty acid-rich foods reduce the risk of developing eye disease like salmons, sardines, tunas, etc.
Although most of the cases are because of refractive error. Genetic Association is also a major risk factor. However, there is no genetic testing available at present to determine if a child of squinting parents will develop squint or not.
