Abstract

Different techniques have been used with varying success in third nerve palsy. Globe tethering technique is one treatment option. The authors describe a novel surgical technique in which permanent suture is used as a tethering agent associated with lateral rectus myectomy. Three patients underwent this technique. Horizontal alignment was satisfactory postoperatively.
