The aim of this study is to evaluate the angle changes and evolution in the postoperatory time and to establish the relationships between them. 146 patients, (medium age 14.17 +/- 15.73 sd), 80 cases of esotropy (ET, range +70(Delta) to +14(Delta)), 48 of vertical deviation (VD, range 25(Delta) to 12(Delta)), and 18 of exotropy (XT, range -70(Delta) to -12(Delta)), underwent strabismus surgery. All patients were evaluated prospectively at I week, 2 and 6 months following surgery. Overall patients presented a variation of angle deviation during the follow up, which calculated with the Anova variance test was significant (p<0.05). The relationship between the mean angle value at I week and the mean angle value at 6(th) month was significant (p<0.05). In our experience, the significant variation within 6 months shows the need of a longer period for final surgical outcomes and for further squint surgery.
