Abstract

Myopic strabismus fixus causes inability of the eye to elevate and abduct in the setting of a myopic superotemporally herniated globe. We report a novel surgical technique to manage an 18-year-old male with myopic strabismus fixus. Radiological imaging demonstrated a nasally deviated superior rectus (SR) and inferiorly displaced lateral rectus (LR). Silicone band assisted myopexy of SR and LR was done along with anchoring them to the sclera with a dacron suture. The patient had satisfactory alignment postoperatively and did not require any intervention over 1-year follow-up.
