Dr. Jonathan M. Holmes reviews new, developing and possible future surgical techniques for strabismus surgery. New techniques include intraoperative assessment of torsion and intraoperative assessment of oblique muscle tension with a superior oblique or inferior oblique traction test. Electrical stimulation of extraocular muscles and pharmacological manipulation with botulinum toxin, bupivacaine or IGF-1 are surgical techniques in development for strabismus.
