ABSTRACT: Adjustable suture strabismus surgery has proved to be a significant aid in handling difficult strabismus cases, and various methods of conjunctival closure have been discussed. A new method of conjunctival closure, enabling direct visualization and manipulation of the muscle with minimal tissue drag during adjustment, is described. The conjunctiva can be fully closed over the knot after adjustment, providing increased patient comfort and a better cosmetic result.
