Acute comitant esotropia after cataract surgery.

J Cataract Refract Surg 2002 Feb;28(2):373-5

Uveitis and Ocular Inflammation Service, Athens, Greece.

A 52-year-old woman developed comitant esotropia after cataract surgery. The ocular history was significant for accommodative esotropia; preoperatively, she manifested peripheral fusion with central suppression. Immediately postoperatively, the patient was diplopic with comitant esotropia and was treated with extraocular muscle surgery. The appearance of horizontal strabismus after cataract surgery in patients with a history of accommodative esotropia, especially those with subnormal binocularity, is a possible complication that should be discussed with the patient.
