• Five patients developed diplopia following cosmetic blepharoplasty. While temporary diplopia and visual disturbances are known to occur following this type of surgery, the persistence of diplopia with demonstrable muscle imbalance is not common. We encountered ocular motility complications involving the inferior oblique muscle, inferior rectus muscle, and superior oblique tendon.
