    Traditional superior oblique weakening procedures may be unpredictable and lead to superior oblique underaction. The use of 240 retinal band as a spacer to lengthen the superior oblique tendon has been proposed as a more controlled approach than superior oblique tenotomy and related procedures. The use of this technique is reported in a patient with diplopia following an orbital floor blow out fracture, and in a child with Brown's superior oblique tendon sheath syndrome.
