The authors present the results of a Delphi study, following on from their previous work which defined successful general outcomes for strabismus surgery. This study aimed to define success outcomes for specific types of strabismus. Twenty-five experts were involved in the two round Delphi process; consensus was predefined as 85% agreement. Patients were not included within the expert group. Analysis revealed that participants provided inconsistent answers across the two rounds, resulting in low intra-rater reliability. For the majority of different types of strabismus, the authors have been unable to determine successful outcomes, with the exception of Brown’s syndrome. Other types of strabismus reached agreement on some outcomes but not all. Several limitations have been outlined by the authors, including the self-selection of participants. This study has provided the groundwork for future research studies to develop consensus.
