Periocular and orbital infections post-strabismus surgery are uncommon, with most of these cases reported in children. We report a rare case of sub-Tenon's abscess in a 27-year-old female following strabismus surgery, which was successfully managed with systemic and topical antibiotics without any requirement for surgical drainage of the abscess.
