We cannot tell you what caused the scar; there are many possible causes from birth trauma to infective agents such a herpes virus and toxoplasmosis. Nor can we tell you if anything can be done.

We can tell you the most important thing is to protect what sight you have especially in the better eye from disease or injury.

You might be a second opinion from a retinal Eye MD ophthalmologist.

Cannot tell you if any treatment is available for the scar. Surgery for the squint (strabismus surgery) does not make the eye see better and often the eye does not remain in the straight position.
