Abstract

We report on two patients, each with an atrophic blind eye who underwent strabismus correction as an alternative treatment of artificial eye prosthesis intolerance. Both patients had acquired intolerance of their prostheses, which could not be adjusted by the ocularist. The intolerance was assumed to result from focal corneal pressure by the prosthesis, related to progressive exotropia and hypertropia. This led to irritation and pain in both patients, and to focal corneal staining in one. Both patients underwent retropositioning of the external and superior rectus muscles of the left eye. At 4 weeks and 13 months postoperatively, they were free of symptoms while wearing the original artificial eye prosthesis.
