Apropos of nothing, here’s a pair of figures from Charles H. Beard (1899), The surgery of strabismus, Memphis Lancet III(1): 16-23.


As a necessary precaution the needles should be tested to see that they are quite sharp. Both needles are passed downward through the tendon (see Fig. 1), at a distance from its insertion proportionate to the degree of effect desired, one near the upper, the other near the lower border, and the loop or stitch thus formed is drawn down snugly upon the tendon (or for the present it may be left standing up somewhat, not drawn entirely down).

If you’re designing the sleeve to a vinyl single by a 1980s hardcore punk band, I strongly recommend incorporating this illustration.
