This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The aims of this review are twofold. Firstly, to identify if either an adjustable suture or non-adjustable suture technique is associated with a more accurate long-term ocular alignment (i.e. at six months). Secondly, to identify specific situations (for example, thyroid eye disease) in which it would be of benefit to use a particular method. This second objective can be achieved if trials have been done in which the patient groups compared have similar co-existing ocular pathology.
