Serious complications during or after strabismus surgery are infrequent. This article gives a brief idea of the complications either local or systemic that can occur during or after squint surgery. Meticulous hemostasis is required at each step in the procedure, whichever conjunctival approach to the muscle is used. Particular caution is required with patients who have thin sclera (such as myopes), have a history of scleritis, previous scleral procedures. The surgeon must be aware of the detailed surgical anatomy of extraocular muscles (eg.location of contiguous vortex veins, especially during oblique muscle surgery).

Keywords: Extraocular, Muscles, Strabismus.
