This 2-year-old child had a history infantile esotropia and a bilateral medial rectus recession was done previously. Dr. Fredrick decided to do a strengthening procedure of the lateral rectus as the eyes were still esotropic. This video demonstrates a lateral rectus resection surgery in the left eye of this child. All the steps of the surgery are demonstrated and explained beautifully by Dr. Fredrick in this video.
Surgery Location: on-board the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Surgeon: Dr. Douglas Fredrick, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, USA
