Strabismus surgery is usually done using general anesthesia for children and adults but local anesthesia is another option for adults. The surgery starts with the eyelids being held open with a lid speculum. A small opening is made through the conjunctiva to access the muscle. Then the muscle is either weakened, strengthened or moved to change its action, and then closed using dissolvable sutures. The surgery usually takes less than 1 to 2 hours to perform.
