Different mechanisms have been hypothesized as contributing to abduction deficit in high myopia: the size of the eye within the orbit, tightness of the medial rectus muscles, decompensation of longstanding esotropia, and inferior displacement of the lateral rectus muscle. Using oculodynamic magnetic resonance imaging, enhanced by computer-aided visualization, we demonstrate globe restriction by the medial orbital wall on abduction in a patient with high myopia.
