Forced duction testing

Richard C Allen, MD

Additional Notes: Length 00:25

This is Richard Allen at the University of Iowa. This video demonstrates forced duction testing in a patient who has a left orbital floor fracture. Toothed forceps are used to grasp the eye at the inferior rectus insertion. On the left, a restriction is noted in the forced duction since that the eye cannot be placed in supraduction while the forced ductions on the right are free.
