6 Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus
Part I: Strabismus
Chapter 14: Surgery of the Extraocular Muscles
When a child has amblyopia, some surgeons prefer to treat the amblyopia before strabismus surgery, whereas others believe that the prognosis for binocular vision is better if surgery is not delayed. If a patient has dense amblyopia or permanent vision loss due to other causes, surgery is usually performed only on the eye with poor vision.
