    One-stage adjustable suture for strabismus correction, with the whole operation done under topical anaesthesia and adjustment done on the table, was performed on 45 consecutive patients. The stability of the post-adjustment result was studied by comparing the post-adjustment deviation on the operating table to that at six weeks and three months after operation. The stability was comparable to that following the usual two-stage adjustable suture. The original angle of deviation and the fusion status were found to have no bearing on the stability of the procedure.
