A transient myopic inclination was found 2 months postoperatively in 23 children who had undergone surgery for congenital esotropia. Neither the age of the children at the time of surgery nor the length of muscle recession/resection influenced these refractive myopic changes. Early postoperative refractive correction with periodic follow-up is essential in preventing amblyopia. In 21 of the 23 children, visual acuity was 6/10 or better at last examination.
