... hi my 11yr old had squint surgery on both eyes when she was 2yrs old, to correct an up down squint, (they left the side to side squints alone as they were very complicated) she was fine, it just looked awful when she came back from theatre as her pillow was very bloody, but they said it was just a little blood but they had put a gel liquid into her eyes and it had mixed in...
