• An inexpensive model for demonstrating and practicing strabismus surgery is described here. The figure-of-8 technique, adjustable rectus recession and resection surgery, and various types of conjunctival closure have been performed on the model. The model can also be helpful in demonstrating and practicing typical recession, resection, advancement, tucking, and marginal myotomy procedures to residents in ophthalmology.
