Strabismus Surgery

Strabismus surgery refers to the loosening or tightening of the eye muscles, which changes the alignment of the eyes relative to each other.

During this procedure, Dr Roelof cuts the conjunctiva to access the eye muscle(s), and uses a delicate hook to isolate the muscle. Yet, no skin incisions are made.

Throughout the preoperative visits Dr Roelof will determine the amount of movement the muscles need to get better a alignment. Then, with the procedure, muscles are replaced in a different position to change the alignment of the eye.
