HERNANDEZ SANTOS, Lourdes Rita et al. The sense of beauty in the surgery of patients suffering from dissociated strabismus. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2010, vol.23, suppl.2, pp.827-835. ISSN 0864-2176.

This paper deals with the concept of beauty in relation to the medical practice, especially in patients with dissociated strabismus, as well as the importance to develop the right aesthetics values pursuant to the high humanistic values of the society that promotes them. In this regard, the esthetic values also have an important place in the life of human beings, so how to cooperate in the formation and understanding of these values should be a mission of every health professional. This paper was intended to approach different interpretations, as well as the identification of this philosophical category by relating it to the surgical correction of this pathology that favors improvement not only in the esthetic appearance but also in the psychosocial function and the quality of life of the patients.

Palabras clave : Disassociated strabismus; aesthetics; beauty; vertical dissociated deviation.
