To compare the relationship of surgical outcome by the postoperative deviation amount between the postoperative 1 day and day in strabismus surgery for treatment of intermittent exotropia.
We checked the postoperative deviation amount at the day of operation and postoperative 1 day. All cases had at least 6 months postoperative follow–up. We evaluated the relationship of the surgical outcome according to the checking time of postoperative deviation by the statistical analysis.
Thirty–seven patients (51%) underwent bilateral rectus recession (BLR) and thirty–six patients (49%) received unilateral medial rectus resection and lateral rectus recession (R&R). In the posteroperative 1 day was higher success relationship but there was no significant difference in success relationship between deviation amount at the day of operation and posteroperative 1 day (r=0.60, r=0.68, p<0.05).
There was no significant difference of the outcome of surgery according to checking time of postoperative deviation, between the date of operation and postoperative 1 day. Therefore, it should be useful management of intermittent exotropia as daily surgery in eye clinic.
