We studied the force for moving an extraocular muscle after adustable suture strabismus surgery with and without the perioperative use of 2% methylhydroxypropylcellulose or sodium hyaluronic acid. The average force for moving an extraocular muscle at postoperative 24 hours are 14.9+/-3.6g in methylcellulose group, 12.4+/-4.2g in hyaluronic acid group and 22.5+/-9.1g in control group. The force for moving an extraocular muscle in methylcellulose group and hyaluronic acid group is significantly lower than that of control group, respectively. On light microscopic examination, no muscle necrosis and foreign body reaction are observed in methylcellulose and hyaluronic acid group, respectively. Methylcellulose and hyaluronic acid can be used as a useful adunct during adustable strabismus surgery.
