This article presents a detailed analysis of sensor and surgical exotropias. Of the 669 operated esotropias 20 patients (2.98%) had surgical consecutive exotropia. Of the 1264 esotropias treated conservatively throughout several years, 7 patients (0.55%) showed sensor consecutive exodeviation. In both groups exotropia appeared in more than 60% of children after the age of 10 years. In 45% of the cases, surgical exodeviation appeared within 6 months of surgical treatment what suggests a wrong estimation of the situation. In the age from 2 to 5 years, 75% of the children were surgically treated. In 65% of the operated patients, several factors were present at the same time, such as amblyopia, anisometropia and vertical component.
