Adjustable suture strabismus surgery is a type of eye muscle surgery that allows the surgeon to be able to fine-tune the eye muscle position in the immediate postoperative period. By being able to adjust the muscle position, a surgeon may be able to maximize the probability of successful eye alignment. The adjustable suture strabismus operation is performed in two steps. First, a standard strabismus surgery involving weakening or tightening one or more eye muscles is performed. During the procedure, an adjustable suture or "slip" knot is placed on one or more of the muscle sutures.
