Abstract Myopic strabismus fixus (MSF) is a rare strabismus entity of uncertain etiology. The most recent explanation of etiology was provided by Yokoyama et al,(1) who noted that the enlarged globe in high myopia herniates superotemporally and retroequatorially through the muscle cone. In a typical case, the eye is fixed in depression and adduction. We report the use of a partial Jensen's procedure (superior arm only) for the treatment of MSF.
