This article describes the clinical manifestations of and management options for intermittent exotropia. Control of the strabismus is one of the parameters that can be assessed for all children with the condition. A method of quantifying control, the Newcastle Control Score, is presented.

Methods: Forty patients with exotropia were observed at least 6 weeks after their esotropia surgery. Surgical planning was based on the...
