Excerpt: ...centers is as follows: The first part of the operation, including the circum-eorneal incision, etc., is practically the same as already described; the only essential difference consists in the severing of the tendoes. since no tendon hook is used. It is usual to begin the operation on the tendon of the internal rectus. The conjunctiva covering this muscle is elevated with one hand, while the other holds a strong pair of toothed forceps with which to grasp the tendon and draw it forward. To do this the closed forceps are care Knucleation. The Vienna method. The cireum-eorneal incision has been made and the muscle has been grasped by the foreeps close to the eyeball. The scissors are cutting the muscle between the foreeps and the belly of the muscle. fully introduced through the opening in and beneath the conjunctiva, along the line of the internal rectus muscle, keeping the end of the forceps in contact with the eyeball. When the tendon is felt the forceps are opened and the tendon firmly grasped and pulled forward. The tendon is then severed by scissors, not between the forceps and eyeball, as is done in a tenotomy, but between the forceps and the internal canthus, to leave a piece of tendon attached to the eyeball sufficiently long that it can be grasped by forceps and be used as a sort of handle to move the eyeball in such various directions as are necessary to complete the subsequent steps of the operation. A blade of the scissors is now pushed upwards toward the superior rectus muscle, keeping close to the sclera, the eyeball meanwhile being rotated downwards by the forceps acting on the internal rectus tendon.
