Abstract
Consecutive exotropia is a manifest exotropia that develops in a formerly esotropic patient. Management of consecutive exotropia is rendered difficult due to scarring from previous surgery, lack of well established surgical dose corrections, high incidence of late exodrifts and requirement of multiple surgeries. We present a case of consecutive V pattern exotropia with mixed amblyopia in the left eye, managed in a staged surgery.
