Abstract We used Maddox double-rod measurements to determine if positionally induced ocular cyclotorsion occurs when a patient moves from the seated to supine position. Maddox double-rod measurements were determined twice while patients (N = 30) viewed a fixation light at a distance of 7 feet in both the seated and supine positions. The difference between axis measurements made in seated and supine positions was not statistically significant. There was also no significant difference between the two measurements made in the seated and in the supine positions. These data show that the eyes do not undergo positionally induced ocular cyclotorsion when a patient moves from a seated to a supine position.
