Eye Muscle Surgery

Eye muscle repair is surgery to correct eye muscle problems that cause strabismus or crossed eyes. The main goal of this surgery is to restore the eye muscles to a proper position. It is most often done on children, however, adults with similar eye problems may also have it done.


To strengthen a particular muscle, a section of the muscle or tendon may be removed to make it shorter and stronger. An eye muscle may need to be loosened, therefor by adding or lengthening a muscle, this goal can be achieved. Strabismus surgery loosens or tightens eye muscles, which changes the alignment of the eyes relative to each other.
