The surgical management of intermittent exotropia has been subject to wide discussion and debate in the literature. In general, recommendations for best practice guidelines for the surgical management of this condition are not possible due to the conflicting finding of various studies and a lack of high quality evidence. The main issues concerning surgical intervention relate to the timing, type and amount of surgery. This paper presents a review of the current literature with a particular focus on these three issues.
