In this case report, we present a novel surgical technique of combining horizontal recess–resect procedure with an inverse Knapp procedure and augmenting the desired effect using augmentation sutures. Apart from improvement in the field of binocular vision, this procedure had the added advantage of preserving the anterior ciliary circulation by involving not more than two rectus muscles (inferior rectus plication being a vessel-sparing procedure). This could be a helpful option in large hypertropia with negative forced duction/generation test (for vertical recti).
