Until now computer models of strabismus have consisted of lengthy calculations based on oculomotor physiology. Such models have been able to demonstrate the pattern of strabismus that would arise from any given muscle abnormality and/or operation. However, it has been difficult to use such models to guide strabismus surgery because the surgeon requires a model that works in the opposite direction. The surgeon requires a model whose input is the pattern of strabismus and output is the muscle operation required. Such a model is described here. Instead of consisting of calculations based on physiology the new model consists of a store of most of the information capable of being generated by an existing strabismus model together with an efficient search procedure. In this paper the potential of the new model is demonstrated by its application to a case of paralytic strabismus.
