Purpose/Relevance:  To summarize the collective experience of our diverse panel in the management of diplopia after ocular surgery in a case-based format.

Target Audience:  Pediatric Ophthalmologists and Strabismus Specialists

Current Practice:  Diplopia after ocular surgery is common and often presents surgical dilemmas given the myriad of potential etiologies.  Strabismus surgeons should understand the indications for various strabismus surgical techniques in the management of these difficult cases.  Primary research in this area is limited.

Best Practice:  Newer techniques will be discussed as will algorithms for the management of the majority of causes of strabismus after ocular surgery.  Peer-reviewed research on the topics will be reviewed.

Expected Outcomes:  Participants will be able to form an algorithm for the management of strabismus after ocular surgery, including post-cataract, retinal detachment, pterygium, and glaucoma surgery.

Format:  Case-based panel format with short lectures interspersed focused on evidence-based management of these patients.  Each panelist will provide their algorithm for management of a particular disorder.

Summary:  Five cases will be presented over the course of the workshop, which will frame our discussion regarding the diagnostic and surgical procedures required for this select group of patients.  Audience participation will be encouraged.
