Lady Louise Windsor health: The Queen's granddaughter's 'quite profound' eye condition

Delivered by emergency Caesarean section, following placental abruption – which causes severe blood loss to mum and baby – Lady Louise Windsor was born weighing 4lbs 9oz and was later found to have esotropia. Esotropia is a squint in one eye that turns inwards towards the nose, the NHS explained. “Premature babies can often have squints because the eyes are the last thing in the baby package to really be finalised,” Countess Sophie told The Sunday Express.

“She’s fine now – her eyesight is perfect,” her dutiful mum added – who is now the Global Ambassador for the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.

Prior to surgery, the NHS stated that children with esotropia may need to wear an eye patch.

“The patch will help to improve the vision only in the squinting eye and will not improve the appearance of the squint,” the national health body explained.

Most children with the condition will need to attend the eye clinic on a regular basis to monitor the condition before surgery.

Examples of eye complications include:

  • Inability to process 3-D vision
  • Loss of thorough image perception
  • Developing amblyopia – a condition which involves the decrease of clear vision in the child’s crossed eye.

Other eye complications can include “seeing double (diplopia)”, “problems with seeing images in depth and with clarity”, and a “decrease in binocular vision”.

Esotropia may also be treated with prescription glasses, vision therapy, and Botox injections.
