What is Strabismus Surgery?
Strabismus surgery is eye muscle surgery to correct the alignment of the eyes. Strabismus surgery strengthens and weakens eye muscles to achieve correct double vision or a squint.

What are the types of Strabismus Surgery?
The most common Strabismus Surgery procedures are:

  • Recession: The surgeon weakens the eye muscle in this procedure. To access the eye muscle, the surgeon makes a small cut in the tissue of the eye. The surgeon cuts the eye muscle and repositions it farther back into the eye.
  • Resection: The surgeon strengthens the eye muscle. The surgeon makes a small cut in the tissue of the eye. A short section of the eye muscle is removed and the shortened muscle is attached back to the eye.
  • Adjustable suture: In this procedure, an adjustable suture is used to attach the eye muscle in a new place on the wall of the eye. Adjustments are made to the eye alignment when the patient is fully awake with the eye numbed.

Duration of procedure/surgery : 20 minutes to 1 hour.

Number of sessions required : Often one operation will be enough to achieve permanent success, but sometimes further procedures are needed following initial surgery.

Days admitted : Almost all patents leave the hospital or clinic the same day.

Anesthesia : Strabismus surgery is carried out under general anesthesia although local anesthesia is sometimes used for adults.

Recovery : - Soreness may persist for up to 3 hours following strabismus surgery and the eyes may stay red for a few weeks. - Patients can usually return to normal activities 2 to 3 days after strabismus surgery. - The final outcome of the surgery is usually apparent 4 to 6 weeks after the procedure.

Risks : - Unsatisfactory alignment of the eyes (over and under correction). - Double vision. - Infection. - Loss of vision (very rare).

After care : - Treat moderate pain with painkillers. - Use antibiotic or medicated eye drops, if prescribed, to lessen the chances of infection. - Avoid swimming for several days following strabismus surgery. - Avoid wearing contact lenses for two weeks. - There may be a small change in glasses prescription following strabismus surgery.
