Strabismus is a visual problem in which the eyes are not aligned properly and point in different directions. During surgery, the eyelids are gently held open with a lid speculum and a small opening is made through the conjunctiva (the mucous membrane surface of the eye) to access the muscle. The muscle is then weakened, strengthened or moved to change its action with dissolvable sutures.
