Definitions of Squint:

Misalignment of the visual axes of the eyes. In comitant strabismus the degree of ocular misalignment does not vary with the direction of gaze. In noncomitant strabismus the degree of misalignment varies depending on direction of gaze or which eye is fixating on the target. (Miller, Walsh & Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 4th ed, p641) - (Source - Diseases Database)

Abnormal alignment of one or both eyes - (Source - WordNet 2.1)

Squint is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Squint, or a subtype of Squint, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
