Abstract. Purpose:To review the outcome of surgery for infantile esotropia and intermittent strabismus during 10 years through 1998. Cases and Methods:Ages of patients of infantile strabismus at the time of surgery ranged from 0 to 68 months,average 34 months. Those of intermittent strabismus ranged from 1 to 17 years,average 10.5 years. Outcome of surgery after 2 years or later was evaluated according to the criteria of the Japanese Association of Strabismus and Amblyopia. Results:Cure was obtained in 84.4% of cases with infantile esotropia and in 74.3% of cases with intermittent strabismus.Stereopsis was obtained in 11% of cases with infantile esotropia and in 84% of cases with intermittent strabismus.Conclusion:Postoperative binocular function was poor in infantile esotropia and fair in intermittent exotropia.
