During the last half of the 20th century, the field of strabismus did not undergo as many major advances as other areas of ophthalmology. In recent years, an increase in basic science research has fostered important advances in our understanding and treatment of disorders of binocular vision. This article identifies 4 important questions that need to be addressed by the pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus community: (1) What terms should be used to describe muscle dysfunction? (2) By what mechanism does strabismus surgery work? (3) What is the role of orbital imaging in the management of strabismus? (4) What is the role of refractive surgery in the treatment of patients with amblyopia and strabismus?
