Congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles is a disorder that affects the muscles that surround the eyes. This prevents the normal development and function of these muscles. As a result, affected individuals are unable to move their eyes normally, with most people having difficulty looking upward, as well as side-to-side.

There are four types of Congenital Fibrosis of the Extraocular Muscles: CFEOM1, CFEOM2, CFEOM3, and Tukel syndrome
