The article focuses on how to deal with large angle congenital esotropia. A case of a 4-month-old infant with a history of having crossed eyes since birth is considered. Based on family history, the father had crossed eyes as a child and underwent eye surgery. Fixation is found symmetrical and normal in the age group. Ocular movements are full with only a slight underaction of each lateral rectus muscle. Evidence of Duane syndrome is absent.
