Although acquired strabismus in a visually mature adult typically causes double vision, this diplopia usually resolves if the eyes are realigned because of the patient«SQ»s previous ability to fuse. In some adults, however, acquired strabismus and diplopia are secondary to a loss of fusional ability. Such patients can suffer from intractable diplopia, which is often more symptomatic if vision is improved and/or if the eyes are realigned. An illustrative case is presented and discussed.
