Medical - Other / optometry
Spanish term or phrase: cuadriga
"Movimientos oculares (Versiones, ducciones, vergencias, cuadriga)"

This is part of the description of a course in optometry from a university in Colombia.

Any idea how to translate "cuadriga"?

I confess I've never ever seen the term "cuadriga". I'm guessing circumduction from elimination and because this particular movement requires concerted action of all four recti muscles; ie, it's the only thing involving 'four' I can think of.

Alas... I do hope this helps.
