Eye muscle surgery is as a rule surgery on healthy eyes. It therefore requires particularly high standards in terms of a lack of complications and predictability of surgical results. Misalignment of the eyes, binocular diplopia and ocular torticollis are all indications for eye muscle surgery as are enlargement of the binocular visual field, asthenopic complaints in heterophoria or the stabilization of binocular functions. Eye muscle surgery is binocular surgery and differs from monocular surgery. It has its own complications and requires specific skills.
