    So actually you want to achieve two goals: 1. correct your squint eye; 2. correct your myopia. As to the squint eye, I don't know your age and your situation, but I can give you a brief introduction on it. Squint eye refers to the misalignment of two eyes. It is mainly caused by the imbalance or misalignment of the two eyes. Some patients have double vision. To treat the squint eye, glasses and patching are the most common treatments for squints, but they are more effective before the children reached 6-8 years old. In your cases, your squint eye might be caused by refractive error. Because if only one eye has severe refractive error, the blurry image it provides would be ignored by the brain. As time goes by, the eye would go blind totally and the good eye takes all the vision responsibility. You should talk to your eye specialist to have suitable prescribed glasses to correct the vision problem and do more eye exercises to help maintain control of the "bad eye" to correct squint. If you want to take a surgery to correct your refractive error, it is also possible. There are many kinds of refractive surgeries now, and you can ask help from the eye specialist to take the surgery fit in your case. Good luck!
