Duane's syndrome is a condition in which the eye exhibits palsy during abduction, with retraction of the globe and narrowing of the palpebral fissure of the affected side during adduction. Two patients with this condition underwent re-recession of the medial rectus muscle, to a position of 13.5 mm from the limbus, to treat a cosmetically unacceptable head-turn and esotropia in the primary position. Postoperatively, improvement of the head-turn with good binocular single vision in the primary position was achieved in both cases.
