Our eyes are comprised of 6 extraocular muscles that are responsible for controlling eye movements. When any of these muscles is too strong in an individual having a squint, it may lead the eyes to turn inwards, outwards, rotate too low or too high. Any of these muscles can also be weak which may lead to misalignment. This is particularly caused when a person has a dysfunction of the cranial nerve which affects the movement control of the eye muscles. Fortunately enough, your eye surgeon is the person who can opt for several surgical choices for correcting the misalignment. Recession & Resection process: In the process of recession, the eye surgeon simply detaches the extraocular muscles which are affected and reattach it through the process of resection in order to disable the strength of the relatively stronger muscle. On the other hand, if you have eye muscles that are too weak, your eye surgeon may opt for the recession process for reducing the strength of the opposing muscles so that the patient can have a properly balanced function of the eye muscles. In some cases, the resection process is used for strengthening the affected muscle and correcting the misalignment related to the squint. For instance, if an individual has esotropia or inwardly turned eye, the eye surgeon would opt for strengthening the lateral rectus muscles located on the outer side of the eye towards the ear, and then reattach the muscle in a different location.
