Diplopia and Strabismus After Corneal Refractive Surgery.

CONCLUSION: Diplopia and strabismus are rare complications after CRS in the U.S. military population. These procedures continue to increase the operational readiness of our service members with minimal risk of these potentially debilitating complications. Overall, this study provides support for the continued use of PRK and LASIK despite study limitations related to the use of large databases for retrospective review. Future prospective studies using delineated preoperative and postoperative examinations with sensorimotor testing included may be able to resolve the limitations of this study.

LONG-TERM VARIABILITY OF STRABISMUS ANGLE IN NEUROLOGICALLY IMPAIRED PREMATURE INFANTS: A 12-YEAR FOLLOW UP. Acta Clin Croat. 2019 Sep;58(3):473-480 Authors: Sardelić E, Utrobičić DK Abstract The aim of this retrospective study was to determine the strabismus angle variability and rationality of surgical treatment of strabismus in prematurely born children with neurological impairment during 12-year follow up. Eleven premature infants born in 2003 were included in the study and treated with equal conservative approach from 2005 until 2016. Initial esotropia was found in seven and exotropia in four o...

We describe a rare case where an extra-large V pattern (>60 Prism Dioptres (PD)) was present along with large exotropia (70 PD). Craniosynostosis or facial asymmetry was not present. The extra-ocular motility evaluation revealed mild over-elevation in adduction and extreme divergence in up-gaze. Examination of the fundus showed ex-cyclotorsion of both the globes. The V pattern was managed by bilateral inferior oblique muscle recession and full thickness upshift of both lateral rectus muscles. The exotropia was treated by bilateral lateral rectus recession and right eye medial rectus resection. Postoperatively, both the ...

We report the case of a 4-year-old girl who presented with paroxysmal stridor and strabismus with diplopia, persisting for several weeks. Severe hypocalcemia (1.25 mmol/L) was finally diagnosed and was related to hypoparathyroidism, which was the first manifestation of autoimmune polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy (APECED) in this patient. Strabismus and stridor both resolved after normalization of calcemia. This case report is a rare observation of paroxysmal strabismus caused by hypocalcemia and it highlights the importance of calcium monitoring in any situation of atypical neurological symptoms. ...

We report the case of a 24-year-old woman who experienced sympathetic ophthalmitis after scleral perforation during strabismus surgery. She presented postoperatively with distorted vision and was successfully treated with intravenous and oral steroids.

Khan, James BaconA 56-year-old woman with pseudophakia and glaucoma was referred because of left eye hypotropia and esotropia noted following superotemporal Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation in that eye. Examination suggested left heavy eye syndrome, and it was confirmed the patient had high axial myopia before her cataract surgeries. Both nasal displacement of the left superior rectus muscle and inferior displacement of the left lateral rectus muscle were noted intraoperati...
