Management of intermittent exotropia strabismus of the divergence excess type Academic Article uri icon


  • A number of surgical and non-surgical options are available for patients with intermittent exotropia. This paper provides a review of this strabismus condition, particularly divergence excess type, with a particular emphasis on treatment. We highlight that there is a lack of evidence for best practice and a need for not only high-quality clinical studies but also a better understanding of current practice patterns among clinicians so as to inform future research.
