How your brain reacts to a squint

Clip from Operation Ouch! Season 2 Episode 9 ABC ME February 5, 2016

Siblings 11yearold Harry and eightyearold Maya visit Xand in the Ouch Mobile. Each has a squint in one of their eyes and wants to know about it. Our doctor explains it's all about muscle control around the eye area. The brain automatically focuses on the stronger eye, and chooses to use those stronger muscles. The weaker eye, bereft of full control, can't quite stay on track and wanders off!
