The authors report a case of a 56-year-old woman with high myopia and a very pronounced restrictive progressively developed eso- and hypotropia. The surgical access to the complete section of the medial rectus muscle was easily obtained by a transcaruncular orbitotomy, not only because of the impossibility of using conventional techniques but also because the scleral rupture becomes highly risky in such cases. The lateral rectus was resected and reinserted above its original path, after being found in the inferotemporal quadrant of the eye. The immediate surgical result (an exotropia of about 12Δ) was considered a very good outcome, since such deviations tend to recur.
