Ten patients underwent extraocular muscle surgery with an intraoperative suspension-recession technique for diplopia induced by vertical strabismus in thyroid myopathy. The average ratio of the reduction of vertical deviation to the amount of surgery was 1.8 degrees/mm (range, 1.0 degrees/mm-2.8 degrees/mm). Eight (80%) patients had single binocular vision restored in the primary position without prism or compensatory torticollis after surgery. One patient who showed evidence of abnormal thyroid function at surgery developed an overcorrection postoperatively.
