Strabismus, often known as crossed eyes or squint, is a visual condition where gaze is misaligned. It is fairly common in children and affects roughly 2% - 5% of the population.

Anaesthesia for emergency eye surgery can present special problems to the anaesthetist. An understanding of some basic principles and techniques of eye anaesthesia have been discussed in previous issues of Update (Nos. 6 & 8).
