Complete third nerve palsy presents with large-angle exotropia and hypotropia in varying degrees, posing a challenge for surgical correction. Nasal transposition of lateral rectus, either full tendon or split tendon or in its adjustable and enhanced modifications, have shown to correct exotropia in third nerve palsy. We present a further modification of split tendon nasal transposition of lateral rectus to correct the large vertical deviation in complete third nerve palsy.
