Surgical intervention in childhood intermittent exotropia: current practice and clinical outcomes from an observational cohort study

Surgical intervention in childhood intermittent exotropia: current practice and clinical outcomes from an observational cohort study 

Comments: 65% of the patients had less than excellent outcomes (28% fair outcomes and 37 poor outcomes). 20% had recurrent XTs. Over correction occurred in 15% of the children. So why do we refer for strabismus surgery before trying non-surgical intervention? Find a functional optometrist before you undergo surgery to determine if optometric vision therapy may be a better option. DM
