Abstract

The authors report two patients with more than 20 diopters of myopia, severely restricted abduction, and more than 90Δ of acquired esotropia. Marked axial elongation of the globes was present. Each underwent large bilateral medial rectus recessions and bilateral lateral rectus resections. The deviations were significantly reduced and abduction improved with combined horizontal recession-resection surgery on both eyes.
