Objective. Theobjective of the study is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of the own modified myoplasty method in correcting strabismus.  Methods. The material of 86 observations made a comparative evaluation of the results of strabismus treatment according to the author's method (patent of the Russian Federation No. 2423068) and the traditional method (according to Avetisov-Makhkamova).  Results. After the first stage of surgical treatment, a decrease in the deviation angle to 0–5° was achieved in 85.3 % of observations with modified myoplasty and in 46.7 % of cases with the traditional method of surgical treatment of strabismus.  Conclusions. In all cases, modified myoplasty allowed to reduce the number of operated extraocular muscles, which reduced the traumaticity and the number of stages of surgical correction of strabismus with large angles of deviation.
