Aligning Strabismus Surgery with Duane Syndrome.

Initial consideration for surgical intervention tends to be resection and recession of affected muscles for strabismus. Resection of eye muscles in patients with Duane syndrome is often avoided because this increases retraction, thus decreasing eye movement and resulting binocular field of vision. Recession is the mainstay of surgical treatment in Duane syndrome to achieve straight eye alignment, increased binocular vision, and decreased head turn.
