    Researchers call for new standards in strabismus surgery for Graves’ orbitopathy

    A standard measurement and grading system for the field of binocular single vision (BSV) should be combined with a quality of life (QoL) questionnaire to assess the success of strabismus surgery in patients with diplopia from Graves’ orbitopathy researchers said.

    Hinke Marijke Jellema, MMedSci, of the Department of Ophthalmology, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and her colleagues noted this approach could fill a gap in research on the procedure. They published their proposal in Acta Ophthalmologica.

    “The lack of standardisation hampers comparative studies and thus the search for the best surgical treatment for diplopia in patients with Graves’ orbitopathy,” they wrote.

    Surgery is the standard treatment for residual diplopia when the disease and motility pattern in  Graves’ orbitopathy have become stable, the researchers said, with the goal of a field of BSV as large as possible.
