Have you consulted any squint specialist before?if not then consult him right away.if yes then can you let me know whether esotropia is accomodative or constant? If it is accomodative then you must wear hyperopic glasses and if not then surgery may be the choice.prisms are mostly given to paralytic squint where patient is having diplopia to relieve the symptoms.not for constant esotropia.so prisms are not the right choice according to me.

Hi..... In some cases, squint eye symptoms may come and go, making it necessary to wear glasses and frequently do eye exercises to align your eyes.. .The condition sometimes occurs because of vision deterioration; in this case, you must have your vision loss corrected in order for squint surgery to be effective..... Consult Ophthalmologist for further advice...
