Closure of the conjunctiva during strabismus surgery can be expedited with the help of a pair of Moody curved fixation forceps. Fixing the forceps at the edges of the conjunctival incision creates tenting of the conjunctiva which ensures a tenon-free closure. Not only is this technique time-saving, but it can be done without the additional need for an assistant. Strabismus surgeons can adopt this simple and effective technique to reduce the surgical time and provide optimum healing of conjunctiva.
