OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of slanted recession of the lateral rectus (LR) muscle for exotropia (XT) with convergence weakness. DESIGN Predesigned, nonrandomized, comparative trial. PARTICIPANTS Twelve study patients and six control subjects with XT greater at near than at distance by > or =10 prism diopters (PD). INTERVENTION Twelve consecutive patients underwent slanted LR recession, and six consecutive control subjects underwent standard LR recession. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES… CONTINUE READING
