Duane Syndrome is a rare inherited disorder of eye movement characterized by limited motion of the eye from side to side (horizontal motility). This disorder belongs to a group of eye disorders associated with ocular abnormalities that result in a cross-eyed appearance (strabismus). The symptoms of Duane Syndrome, which are present at birth (congenital), may include retraction of the eyeball, impaired ability to move the eye, and compensating face-turning. The exact cause of Duane Syndrome is not known. However, it may occur in association with a variety of other disorders. Three types of Duane Syndrome are recognized, based on the specific form of eye impairment.
