OPERATION ON THE OCULAR MUSCLES: A FEW POINTS IN OPERATIVE TECHNIC

Arch Ophthalmol. 1940;23(4):833-838. doi:10.1001/archopht.1940.00860130927010
Abstract

Simple modifications of the technic of operations on the ocular muscles, I have found, can materially improve the results obtained and reduce the time required. I report these for what they may be worth to others. The points made may appear simple and obvious, but they represent thought and experience, and a trial will prove their value. I am aware of the many operations on the ocular muscles, and I have found procedures of merit in many of them.

When Jameson1 introduced his epoch-making recession operation, supplementing simple tenotomy, there grew up a literature on various modifications of this technic. Each writer described what he regarded as a simpler method of executing the essential principle of reattaching the cut muscle at a given point on the globe. These modifications are welcome additions, for in each case one may find points of value.

In 1933 Curdy2 introduced a simplified
