The angle of squint deviation was measured preoperatively before and after a prism adaptation of 1 day's duration in 50 esotropic and 45 exotropic patients. All had a deviation of 17 degrees or more under prismatic correction and were operated on by a recess-resect procedure of 10 mm on one eye. Postoperative measurements were done about 4 days and 6 weeks after surgery. In 58% of the esotropic and 37% of the exotropic patients, the initial deviation increased under prisms. This was found most… CONTINUE READING
