It is with great interest that we read the paper published by Okamoto et al.1 In this paper, the authors retrospectively evaluated 135 cases who underwent inferior rectus nasal transposition for acquired or decompensated superior oblique palsy. The authors concluded that inferior rectus nasal transposition decreased the excyclotorsion effect with the added advantage of long-term stability and also allowing for simultaneous correction of the vertical deviation.
