A five-year-old boy was examined in follow-up in our strabismus department due to exotropia and amblyopia in the right eye. Recession to both lateral recti muscles was performed. When the patient was examined one week, postoperatively, he complained of pain in the right eye. Upon physical examination, hyperemia and minimal swelling of the surgical area were observed. The situation was diagnosed as an abscess. The abscess was drained and the eye was irrigated with cefazolin and gentamycin solutions. All signs and symptoms were determined to be resolved in subsequent postoperative visits.
