To avoid the inevitable postoperative cyclotropia we combined this procedure with torsional muscle surgery. · Patients and methods: In 30 eyes the macula was rotated upward by 30–50° following complete artificial retinal detachment and a 360° retinotomy. Simultaneous torsional muscle surgery was not carried out in the… CONTINUE READING
