Anterior segment ischemia has been described in patients who underwent strabismus surgery that involved surgery on three or four extraocular muscles. Rarely, as well as in specific circumstances, this postoperative complication occurred after two-muscle surgery. A patient who suffered a third nerve paralysis and developed exotropia underwent strabismus surgery shortly after her injury. Thirty years later she was operated on again to correct her residual exotropia. After a two-muscle surgery in one eye, the patient developed anterior segment ischemia.
