Congenital esotropia

This 5 year-old girl has had bilateral medial recti recession for congenital esotropia. The left eye shows minimal esotropia. The vision is normal in both eyes. However, the adducting shows upshooting when the eyes look to either side. The problem can be corrected by bilateral inferior oblique myectomy.



Small residual left esotropia.


Overshooting of the adducting eye on looking to either direction.
