PURPOSE: To evaluate the value of prism adaptation in planning strabismus reoperations. METHODS: Of 15 patients with persistent strabismus, 9 underwent prism adaptation prior to strabismus reoperation and 6 underwent strabismus reoperation without preoperative prism adaptation. Corrective surgery was performed on the same or new muscles. Follow-up ranged from 3 months to 2 years. A horizontal deviation of 10 prism diopters or less was considered a successful outcome. Statistical analysis of the results was done. RESULTS: Of the 9 patients who had prism adaptation, 3 (33%) were responders and 6 (67%) were nonresponders. A successful outcome was achieved in 6 patients (67%) who had prism adaptation and 3 patients (50%) who did not. The difference between groups was statistically insignificant (P > .05). CONCLUSION: These results suggest that the benefits of prism adaptation are not significant enough to justify the time consumption and expenses of this test when planning strabismus reoperations, but a larger group of patients should be studied.
