A condition of an inequality of refractive power of the two eyes.
An objective determination of the refractive state of the eye (NEARSIGHTEDNESS; FARSIGHTEDNESS; ASTIGMATISM). By using a RETINOSCOPE, the amount of correction and the power of lens needed can be determined.
A nonspecific term referring to impaired vision. Major subcategories include stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia and toxic amblyopia. Stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia is a developmental disorder of the visual cortex. A discrepancy between visual information received by the visual cortex from each eye results in abnormal cortical development. STRABISMUS and REFRACTIVE ERRORS may cause this condition. Toxic amblyopia is a disorder of the OPTIC NERVE which is associated with ALCOHOLISM, tobacco SMOKING, and other toxins and as an adverse effect of the use of some medications.
Deviations from the average or standard indices of refraction of the eye through its dioptric or refractive apparatus.
Misalignment of the visual axes of the eyes. In comitant strabismus the degree of ocular misalignment does not vary with the direction of gaze. In noncomitant strabismus the degree of misalignment varies depending on direction of gaze or which eye is fixating on the target. (Miller, Walsh & Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 4th ed, p641)
Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Refraction of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus behind the retina, as a result of the eyeball being too short from front to back. It is also called farsightedness because the near point is more distant than it is in emmetropia with an equal amplitude of accommodation. (Dorland, 27th ed)
A condition in which the ocular image of an object as seen by one eye differs in size and shape from that seen by the other.
A form of ocular misalignment characterized by an excessive convergence of the visual axes, resulting in a "cross-eye" appearance. An example of this condition occurs when paralysis of the lateral rectus muscle causes an abnormal inward deviation of one eye on attempted gaze.
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
A pair of ophthalmic lenses in a frame or mounting which is supported by the nose and ears. The purpose is to aid or improve vision. It does not include goggles or nonprescription sun glasses for which EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES is available.
Agents that dilate the pupil. They may be either sympathomimetics or parasympatholytics.
A parasympatholytic anticholinergic used solely to obtain mydriasis or cycloplegia.
The blending of separate images seen by each eye into one composite image.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
Surgical procedures employed to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS such as MYOPIA; HYPEROPIA; or ASTIGMATISM. These may involve altering the curvature of the CORNEA; removal or replacement of the CRYSTALLINE LENS; or modification of the SCLERA to change the axial length of the eye.
The dioptric adjustment of the EYE (to attain maximal sharpness of retinal imagery for an object of regard) referring to the ability, to the mechanism, or to the process. Ocular accommodation is the effecting of refractive changes by changes in the shape of the CRYSTALLINE LENS. Loosely, it refers to ocular adjustments for VISION, OCULAR at various distances. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
A form of ocular misalignment where the visual axes diverge inappropriately. For example, medial rectus muscle weakness may produce this condition as the affected eye will deviate laterally upon attempted forward gaze. An exotropia occurs due to the relatively unopposed force exerted on the eye by the lateral rectus muscle, which pulls the eye in an outward direction.
The functional superiority and preferential use of one eye over the other. The term is usually applied to superiority in sighting (VISUAL PERCEPTION) or motor task but not difference in VISUAL ACUITY or dysfunction of one of the eyes. Ocular dominance can be modified by visual input and NEUROTROPHIC FACTORS.
Application of tests and examinations to identify visual defects or vision disorders occurring in specific populations, as in school children, the elderly, etc. It is differentiated from VISION TESTS, which are given to evaluate/measure individual visual performance not related to a specific population.
The absence or restriction of the usual external sensory stimuli to which the individual responds.
The distance between the anterior and posterior poles of the eye, measured either by ULTRASONOGRAPHY or by partial coherence interferometry.
The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.
The condition of where images are correctly brought to a focus on the retina.
Perception of three-dimensionality.
Material, usually gauze or absorbent cotton, used to cover and protect wounds, to seal them from contact with air or bacteria. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
A series of tests used to assess various functions of the eyes.
The organ of sight constituting a pair of globular organs made up of a three-layered roughly spherical structure specialized for receiving and responding to light.
Processes and properties of the EYE as a whole or of any of its parts.
The total number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time. It is differentiated from INCIDENCE, which refers to the number of new cases in the population at a given time.
Lenses designed to be worn on the front surface of the eyeball. (UMDNS, 1999)
The turning inward of the lines of sight toward each other.
The use of statistical and mathematical methods to analyze biological observations and phenomena.
Lists of words, usually in alphabetical order, giving information about form, pronunciation, etymology, grammar, and meaning.
The space in the eye, filled with aqueous humor, bounded anteriorly by the cornea and a small portion of the sclera and posteriorly by a small portion of the ciliary body, the iris, and that part of the crystalline lens which presents through the pupil. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed, p109)
A publication issued at stated, more or less regular, intervals.
The systematic arrangement of entities in any field into categories classes based on common characteristics such as properties, morphology, subject matter, etc.
A localized defect in the visual field bordered by an area of normal vision. This occurs with a variety of EYE DISEASES (e.g., RETINAL DISEASES and GLAUCOMA); OPTIC NERVE DISEASES, and other conditions.
A characteristic symptom complex.
Images seen by one eye.
Lenses, generally made of plastic or silicone, that are implanted into the eye in front of the natural EYE LENS, by the IRIS, to improve VISION, OCULAR. These intraocular lenses are used to supplement the natural lens instead of replacing it.
Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.
Artificial implanted lenses.
A surgical specialty concerned with the structure and function of the eye and the medical and surgical treatment of its defects and diseases.

The only common feature among these tumors is the absence of giant REED-STERNBERG CELLS, a characteristic of Hodgkin's disease.
Malignant lymphoma composed of large B lymphoid cells whose nuclear size can exceed normal macrophage nuclei, or more than twice the size of a normal lymphocyte. The pattern is predominantly diffuse. Most of these lymphomas represent the malignant counterpart of B-lymphocytes at midstage in the process of differentiation.
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES.

MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; SEZARY SYNDROME; LYMPHOMATOID PAPULOSIS; and PRIMARY CUTANEOUS ANAPLASTIC LARGE CELL LYMPHOMA are the best characterized of these disorders.

The role of optical defocus in regulating refractive development in infant monkeys. (1/126)

Early in life, the two eyes of infant primates normally grow in a coordinated manner toward the ideal refractive state. We investigated the extent to which lens-induced changes in the effective focus of the eye affected refractive development in infant rhesus monkeys. The main finding was that spectacle lenses could predictably alter the growth of one or both eyes resulting in appropriate compensating refractive changes in both the hyperopic and myopic directions. Although the effective operating range of the emmetropization process in young monkeys is somewhat limited, the results demonstrate that emmetropization in this higher primate, as in a number of other species, is an active process that is regulated by optical defocus associated with the eye's effective refractive state.  (+info)

The therapy of amblyopia: an analysis of the results of amblyopia therapy utilizing the pooled data of published studies. (2/126)

CONTEXT: Although the treatment of amblyopia with occlusion has changed little over the past 3 centuries, there is little agreement about which regimes are most effective and for what reasons. OBJECTIVE: To determine the outcome of occlusion therapy in patients with anisometropic, strabismic, and strabismic-anisometropic amblyopia employing the raw data from 961 patients reported in 23 studies published between 1965 and 1994. DESIGN: Analysis of the published literature on amblyopia therapy results during the above interval, utilizing primary data obtained from the authors of these articles or tables published in the articles detailing individual patient outcomes. PARTICIPANTS: 961 amblyopic patients, participants in 23 studies, undergoing patching therapy for amblyopia from 1965 to 1994 with anisometropia, strabismus, or anisometropia-strabismus. MAIN OUTCOMES: In the pooled data set, success of occlusion therapy was defined as visual acuity of 20/40 at the end of treatment. RESULTS: Success by the 20/40 criteria was achieved in 512 of 689 (74.3%) patients. By category, 312 of 402 (77.6%) were successful in strabismic amblyopia, 44 of 75 (58.7%) in strabismic-anisometropic amblyopia, and 72 of 108 (66.7%) in anisometropic amblyopia. Success was not related to the duration of occlusion therapy, type of occlusion used, accompanying refractive error, patient's sex, or eye. Univariate analyses showed that success was related to the age at which therapy was initiated; the type of amblyopia; the depth of visual loss before treatment for the anisometropic patients and the strabismic patients, but not for the anisometropic-strabismic patients; and the difference in spherical equivalents between eyes, for the anisometropic patients. Logistic/linear regression revealed that 3 were independent predictors of a successful outcome of amblyopia therapy. CONCLUSIONS: Factors that appear most closely related to a successful outcome are age, type of amblyopia, and depth of visual loss before treatment. These may be related to factors, as yet undetermined in the pathogenesis of amblyopia. With present emphasis on the value of screening and prevention and the development of new screening tools, such a look at the results of amblyopia therapy in a large population seems indicated.  (+info)

Amblyopia and visual acuity in children with Down's syndrome. (3/126)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Amblyopia in people with Down's syndrome has not been well investigated. This study was designed to determine the prevalence and associated conditions of amblyopia in a group of home reared children with Down's syndrome. METHODS: All children in the study group underwent an evaluation of visual acuity. In addition, previous ophthalmological records were reviewed, and a subgroup of children was examined. For the purposes of this study, amblyopia was defined quantitatively as a difference of two Snellen acuity lines between eyes or if unilateral central steady maintained (CSM) vision and a clear fixation preference was observed. A high refractive error was defined as a spherical equivalent more than 3 dioptres and astigmatism more than 1.75 dioptres. Anisometropia was defined as a difference of at least 1.5 dioptres of sphere and/or 1.0 dioptre of cylinder between eyes. 68 children with Down's syndrome between the ages of 5 and 19 years were enrolled in the final study group. RESULTS: Amblyopia was observed in 15 (22%) of 68 patients. An additional 16 (24%) patients had bilateral vision less than 20/50. Strabismus, high refractive errors, and anisometropia were the conditions most commonly associated with decreased vision and amblyopia CONCLUSION: This study suggests that the prevalence of amblyopia is higher than previously reported. Fully 46% of these children with Down's syndrome had evidence of substantial visual deficits. These patients may be at higher risk for visual impairment and should be carefully examined for ophthalmological problems.  (+info)

The association between anisometropia, amblyopia, and binocularity in the absence of strabismus. (4/126)

PURPOSE: First, to determine if thresholds exist for the development of amblyopia and subnormal binocularity with various types of anisometropia and to confirm or refute existing guidelines for its treatment or observation. Second, to delineate any association between the degree or type of anisometropia and the depth of amblyopia and severity of binocular sensory abnormalities. METHODS: Four hundred eleven (411) patients with various levels of anisometropia, no previous therapy, and no other ocular pathology were evaluated. The effect of anisometropia (both corrected and uncorrected) on monocular acuity and binocular function was examined. RESULTS: Spherical myopic anisometropia (SMA) of > 2 diopters (D) or spherical hypermetropic anisometropia (SHA) of > 1 D results in a statistically significant increase in the incidence of amblyopia and decrease in binocular function when compared to non anisometropic patients. Increasing levels of SMA and SHA beyond these thresholds were also associated with increasing depth (and in the case of SHA, incidence as well) of amblyopia. Cylindrical myopic anisometropia (CMA) or cylindrical hyperopic anisometropia (CHA) of > 1.5 D results in a statistically significant increase in amblyopia and decrease in binocular function. A clinically significant increase in amblyopia occurs with > 1 D of CMA or CHA. Increasing levels of CMA and CHA beyond > 1 D were also associated with an increased incidence (and in the case of SMA, depth as well) of amblyopia. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides guidelines for the treatment or observation of anisometropia and confirms and characterizes the association between the type and degree of anisometropia and the incidence and severity of amblyopia and subnormal binocularity.  (+info)

Factors limiting contrast sensitivity in experimentally amblyopic macaque monkeys. (5/126)

Contrast detection is impaired in amblyopes. To understand the contrast processing deficit in amblyopia, we studied the effects of masking noise on contrast threshold in amblyopic macaque monkeys. Amblyopia developed as a result of either experimentally induced strabismus or anisometropia. We used random spatiotemporal broadband noise of varying contrast power to mask the detection of sinusoidal grating patches. We compared masking in the amblyopic and non-amblyopic eyes. From the masking functions, we calculated equivalent noise contrast (the noise power at which detection threshold was elevated by square root of 2) and signal-to-noise ratio (the ratio of threshold contrast to noise contrast at high noise power). The relation between contrast threshold and masking noise level was similar for amblyopic and non-amblyopic eyes. Although in most cases there was some elevation in equivalent noise for amblyopic compared to fellow eyes, signal-to-noise ratio showed greater variation with the extent of amblyopia. These results support the idea that the contrast detection deficit in amblyopia is a cortical deficit.  (+info)

Outcome in refractive accommodative esotropia. (6/126)

AIM: To examine outcome among children with refractive accommodative esotropia. METHODS: Children with accommodative esotropia associated with hyperopia were included in the study. The features studied were ocular alignment, amblyopia, and the response to treatment, binocular single vision, requirement for surgery, and the change in refraction with age. RESULTS: 103 children with refractive accommodative esotropia were identified. Mean follow up was 4.5 years (range 2-9.5 years). 41 children (39.8%) were fully accommodative (no manifest deviation with full hyperopic correction). The remaining 62 children (60.2%) were partially accommodative. At presentation 61.2% of children were amblyopic in one eye decreasing to 15.5% at the most recent examination. Stereopsis was demonstrated in 89.3% of children at the most recent examination. Mean cycloplegic refraction (dioptres, spherical equivalent) remained stable throughout the follow up period. The mean change in refraction per year was 0.005 dioptres (D) in right eyes (95% CL -0. 0098 to 0.02) and 0.001 D in left eyes (95% CL -0.018 to 0.021). No patients were able to discard their glasses and maintain alignment. CONCLUSIONS: Most children with refractive accommodative esotropia have an excellent outcome in terms of visual acuity and binocular single vision. Current management strategies for this condition result in a marked reduction in the prevalence of amblyopia compared with the prevalence at presentation. The degree of hyperopia, however, remains unchanged with poor prospects for discontinuing glasses wear. The possibility that long term full time glasses wear impedes emmetropisation must be considered. It is also conceivable, however, that these children may behave differently with normal and be predestined to remain hyperopic.  (+info)

The role of anisometropia in the development of accommodative esotropia. (7/126)

PURPOSE: To determine if anisometropia increases the risk for the development of accommodative esotropia in hypermetropia. METHODS: Records of all new patients with a refractive error of > or = +2.00 (mean spherical equivalent [SE] of both eyes) over a 42-month period were reviewed. Three hundred forty-five (345) patients were thus analyzed to determine the effect of anisometropia (> or = 1 diopter [D]) on the relative risk of developing esodeviation and of requiring surgical correction once esodeviation was present (uncontrolled deviation). RESULTS: Anisometropia (> or = 1 D) increased the relative risk of developing accommodative esodeviation to 1.68 (P < .05). Anisometropia (> or = 1 D) increased the relative risk for esodeviation to 7.8 (P < .05) in patients with a mean SE of < 3 D and to 1.49 (P < .05) in patients with SE of > or = 3 D. This difference was significant (P = .016). In patients with esotropia and anisometropia (> or = 1 D), the relative risk for an uncontrolled deviation was 1.72 (P < .05) compared with nonanisometropic esotropic patients. Uncontrolled esodeviation was present in 33% of anisometropic patients versus 0% of nonanisometropic patients with a mean hypermetropic SE of < 3 D (P = .003); however, anisometropia did not increase the relative risk of uncontrolled esotropia in patients with SE of > or = 3 D. Although amblyopia and anisometropia were closely associated, anisometropia increased the relative risk of esodeviation to 2.14 (P < .05) even in the absence of amblyopia. CONCLUSIONS: Anisometropia (> 1 D) is a significant risk factor for the development of accommodative esodeviation, especially in patients with lower overall hypermetropia (< 3 D). Anisometropia also increases the risk that an accommodative esodeviation will not be fully eliminated with hypermetropic correction.  (+info)

Contour integration deficits in anisometropic amblyopia. (8/126)

PURPOSE: Previous retrospective studies have found that integration of orientation information along contours defined by Gabor patches is abnormal in strabismic, but not in anisometropic, amblyopia. This study was conducted to reexamine the question of whether anisometropic amblyopes have contour integration deficits prospectively in an untreated sample, to isolate the effects of the disease from the effects of prior treatment-factors that may have confounded the results in previous retrospective studies. METHODS: Contour detection thresholds, optotype acuity, and stereoacuity were measured in a group of 19 newly diagnosed anisometropic amblyopes before initiation of occlusion therapy. Contour detection thresholds were measured using a card-based procedure. RESULTS: Significant interocular differences in contour detection thresholds were present in 14 of the 19 patients with anisometropic amblyopia. CONCLUSIONS: Contour integration deficits are a common, but not universal, finding in untreated anisometropic amblyopia. Differences in the prevalence of contour integration deficits between the present study and that of another study may lie in differences in treatment history and/or in the sensitivity of the two different contour integration tasks.  (+info)

Results The overall prevalence of SE and cylindrical anisometropia ≥1.0 D were 2.7% and 3.0%, for the overall sample and in children of European-Caucasian ethnicity, 3.2%, 1.9%; East-Asian 1.7%, 5.2%; South-Asian 2.5%, 3.6%; Middle-Eastern ethnicities 2.2%, 3.3%, respectively. Anisometropia prevalence was lower or similar to that in the Baltimore Pediatric Eye Disease Study, Multi-Ethnic Pediatric Eye Disease Study and the Strabismus, Amblyopia and Refractive error in Singapore study. Risk (OR) of anisometropic amblyopia with ≥1.0 D of SE and cylindrical anisometropia was 12.4 (CI 4.0 to 38.4) and 6.5 (CI 2.3 to 18.7), respectively. We found an increasing risk of anisometropia with higher myopia ≥−1.0 D, OR 61.6 (CI 21.3 to 308), hyperopia , +2.0 D, OR 13.6 (CI 2.9 to 63.6) and astigmatism ≥1.5 D, OR 30.0 (CI 14.5 to 58.1).. ...
Anisometropia is the condition in which the two eyes have unequal refractive (glasses) power. The name is derived from Greek components: an- not, iso- same, metr- measure, opia eye or sight. Often each eye is nearsighted (myopia) or farsighted (hyperopia), and then to meet the technical criteria of anisometropia the difference between the right and left eye is two or more diopters (the inverse of a meter, which is how an optical lens power is described). Although much less common, it is possible to have one nearsighted and one farsighted eye - this is a unique subset of anisometropia called antimetropia. Anisometropia is actually fairly common. An estimated 20% of people have an inter-ocular difference of 0.5D or greater, and 2-3% have a difference of 3D or more.
Results Asymmetry of axial length, corneal power, vitreous chamber depth, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness and lens power were significantly more among participants who were anisometropic than those who were non-anisometropic. The correlation of anisometropia with axial length asymmetry was 0.735, 0.273 with corneal power, 0.183 with anterior chamber depth and 0.311 with lens power (p,0.001). In a multiple linear regression model, anisometropia was found to have significant associations with axial length asymmetry (standard coefficient (SC)=0.905), corneal power asymmetry (SC=0.350), lens power asymmetry (SC=0.454), nuclear opacity asymmetry (SC=0.074) and age (SC=0.28) (R2=85.1%). According to the linear regression model, corneal power had the strongest association with anisoastigmatism.. ...
Groups 1 and 2 showed a significant difference in development of refractive error (Fig 1). Group 1 SEQ was best fit with a bi-linear spline model: y1=0.09-4.47*Age when Age≤1.3 years; y2=-5.61-0.17*(Age-1.3) when Age,1.3 years. Before the age of 1.3 years, the rate of myopic shift was -4.5D/year; after 1.3 years, the rate slowed to -0.2D/year. Group 2 SEQ was best fit with a linear model: y=1.66+0.007*Age; i.e., there was little change in refraction with age. In Group 1, by 12 months of age, most children (73%) were myopic and 36% had high myopia (≤-5D). In Group 2, most had low hyperopia and 87% maintained hyperopia at the final visit. Anisometropia was significantly larger in Group 1 than in Group 2 (P=0.029) initally and increased about two times faster than in Group 2 (0.27 vs 0.12 D/year) (Fig 2).. ...

This study will evaluate the effectiveness of refractive correction alone for the treatment of previously untreated strabismic or combined-mechanism amblyopia in children 3 to ,7 years old with visual acuity of 20/40 to 20/400.. A recently completed PEDIG study (ATS5) found that in 3 to , 7-year-old children with previously untreated anisometropic amblyopia, refractive correction alone improved visual acuity by 2 or more lines in 77% of the patients and amblyopia resolved in at least one third of the patients. These results supported previous observations from retrospective and pilot studies as well as Stewart et als prospective report on 18 children with anisometropic amblyopia whose visual acuity improved after treatment with spectacle correction only.. Improvement in amblyopic eye visual acuity from treatment with optimum refractive correction in cases of anisometropic amblyopia is plausible because the refractive correction treats the underlying amblyogenic condition (i.e., uncorrected ...

Between February 2001 and October 2002, 55 subjects with anisometropic myopia were recruited from patients who attended clinics for refractive errors and itchy eye. All subjects included in this study underwent a complete ophthalmic examination and ascertainment of ocular and hand dominance. In this study, a diagnosis of anisometropic myopia was made if an individual had a spherical equivalent of less than −0.5 diopters (D) in one eye and no more than 0 D in the other eye, and a difference in spherical equivalent of at least 0.5 D between the two eyes. The following inclusion criteria were required: orthophoria determined by the cover test, and an optimum distance correction giving an equal vision of better than 20/22 (6/6.7) in the two eyes (i.e., the absence of amblyopia). Because anisometropia is associated with amblyopia, 17 only nonamblyopic subjects were included in the study to avoid any effect of amblyopia on ocular dominance. 6 Subjects were not eligible and were excluded from the ...
The gold standard treatments in amblyopia are penalizing therapies, such as patching or blurring vision with atropine that are aimed at forcing the use of the amblyopic eye. However, in the last years, new therapies are being developed and validated, such as dichoptic visual training, aimed at stimulating the amblyopic eye and eliminating the interocular supression. To evaluate the effect of dichoptic visual training using a virtual reality head mounted display in a sample of anisometropic amblyopic adults and to evaluate the potential usefulness of this option of treatment. A total of 17 subjects (10 men, 7 women) with a mean age of 31.2 years (range, 17-69 year) and anisometropic amblyopia were enrolled. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and stereoacuity (Stereo Randot graded circle test) changes were evaluated after 8 sessions (40 min per session) of dichoptic training with the computer game Diplopia Game (Vivid Vision) run in the Oculus Rift OC DK2 virtual reality head mounted display (Oculus VR).

Some binocular treatments for amblyopia propose that they help children overcome interocular suppression and experience binocular vision while playing a game and possibly yield better vision outcomes. Others believe that combining a binocular game with patching demonstrates even more visual acuity (VA) improvement. However, a Chinese study has revealed that using a binocular game has no superiority in binocularity over part-time patching, and combining the two does not improve VA. For 103 Chinese anisometropic children between the ages of three and 13, researchers prescribed three months of at-home therapy. The binocular group played a binocular game for 40 minutes each day, divided into four training sessions. The patching group received two to six hours of patching of the fellow eye a day depending on the severity of amblyopia. The combined group had to complete both the binocular game and part-time patching.. The differences in VA changes were similar among the three groups, suggesting the ...

There is a third, rare type of amblyopia, where vision is obstructed by visual occlusions such as congenital cataracts―called deprivation amblyopia. Unlike the more common causes of lazy eye which can often be addressed without surgery, this third type must be surgically corrected to allow normal vision development.. Earlier is better when it comes to treatment. Amblyopia is not only the top cause of eye impairment in kids; it is also the most common cause of monocular (single eye) issues among young and middle-aged adults. Unless lazy eye is effectively treated in early childhood, it almost always persists into adulthood. Fortunately, prospects are bright for children who receive treatment early, between the ages of 3 and 6.. If amblyopia is left untreated, or if treatment is delayed until the preteen or early teen years, it could mean the difference between full and partial recovery. Because the brain has ignored the weaker eye for so long, retraining it becomes more difficult, and vision in ...

Gross motor skills refer to the big movements we make with our bodies, using our arms and legs.. Fine motor skills refer to the movements we make using the small muscles in our hands, wrists, fingers, and toes.. Any activity where children are pinching, twisting, kneading, squeezing, threading, pulling, and holding uses movements that involve fine motor skills.. Children need to develop their fine motor skills so they can fasten buttons and tie shoelaces. Crucially, fine motor skills are also needed to hold a pen and write well, and many difficulties later on with writing can be tracked back to poor fine motor skills.. By supporting our children to develop fine motor skills through play in early childhood, were helping build vital skills theyll need for the rest of their lives.. ...
PurposeRecent studies have found a choroidal thickening in amblyopic eyes and suggested that there might be a relationship between the choroid and amblyopia.

Background: Changes in motor development provide children with new learning opportunities to interact with objects, their environment, and with caregivers. Previous research finds that both gross and fine motor skills are predictive of later language outcomes across early infancy and childhood. However, gross and fine motor skills afford different types of interactions. Thus, gross and fine motor skills may potentially differ in the developmental trajectories through which cascading changes in language may occur. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether there are differences in the predictive capacities of gross and fine motor skills toward language outcomes across infancy and early childhood in typical development.Method: A systematic review of existing literature on motor-language cascades was conducted in across studies measuring gross and/or fine motor and language development in children from 0 to 5 years old. Searches were conducted in PsycINFO, PubMed, and MEDLINE. Keywords used

Prerequisite: VT/Visual Dysfunctions VT - 1. This course supplements the core VT/Visual Dysfunctions (VT I) course with testing and therapy activities to diagnose and treat patients with strabismus and amblyopia.. For whatever reasons, strabismus and amblyopia have a reputation for being difficult to understand and treat. The approach of the OEP Clinical Curriculum stems from the understanding of Chaos and Complexity Theory which states, That which appears to be complex, most often can be explained very simply. That which appears so simple, most often is actually very complex. You will learn how specific disruptions or thwarting experiences occurring at critical times in normal infant development can result in strabismus or amblyopia. How and why do amblyopia and strabismus develop? What percentage of strabismus and amblyopia are functionally related? How can the development of amblyopia or strabismus be beneficial to the person at a specified point in time and why is this behavior not ...

Below is a translation into common language of a technical paper that reviewed literature on Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, and then a review by Dr. Susan Barry, PhD, who is both a researcher, college professor, and an individual who had several surgeries as a young child to address her eye turn and lazy eye. As an adult, she had Vision Therapy and was then able to gain the ability to use her two eyes as a team and resolve both the amblyopia and the strabismus.. Amblyopia (lazy eye) is a neuro-developmental disorder of the visual cortex that arises from abnormal visual experience early in life. Amblyopia is clinically important because it is a major cause of vision loss in infants and young children.. Amblyopia is not a problem of the eye, but rather a brain based problem that is caused when someone does not have normal visual development. Yes, VISION DEVELOPS.. Undestanding Amblyopia and how it is fixed also helps us understand how changable the brain is, and how it can recover, for ...
One barrier to detecting amblyopia in children is that kids get used to the condition. The most common symptom of amblyopia is strabismus, commonly referred to as crossed-eyed. The vision of the straight eye becomes dominant, whereas the crossed eyes vision deteriorates. Amblyopia can be passed down genetically, and there is more of a risk if the child is born prematurely. If not treated, a patient can have increased healthcare costs, educational difficulties, permanent vision impairment and blindness. The older a child gets, usually around eight, the harder it is to avoid permanent vision impairment. With GoCheckKids, amblyopia can be detected early on. Using photoscreening or visual acuity, pediatricians can see if they are developing amblyopia and refer them to an eye care specialist. The AAP recommends annual photo screening starting at age one. The earlier amblyopia is detected, the more effective the treatment options are. Fast ...

Looking for online definition of alcoholic amblyopia in the Medical Dictionary? alcoholic amblyopia explanation free. What is alcoholic amblyopia? Meaning of alcoholic amblyopia medical term. What does alcoholic amblyopia mean?
Many people make the mistake of saying that a person who has a crossed or turned eye has a lazy eye, but amblyopia and strabismus are not the same condition. Some of the confusion may be due to the fact that an eye turn can cause lazy eye. In other words, amblyopia can result from a constant unilateral strabismus (i.e., an eye that turns or deviates all of the time). Alternating or intermittent strabismus (an eye turn which occurs only some of the time) rarely causes amblyopia.. While a deviating eye (strabismus) can be easily spotted by the layman, amblyopia without strabismus or associated with a small deviation usually can be not noticed by either you or your pediatrician. Only an eye doctor comfortable in examining young children and infants can detect this type of amblyopia. This is why early infant and pre-school eye examinations are so necessary.. Due to misunderstanding or misuse of the terms for different visual conditions (i.e., deviating eyes vs. lazy eye), many people are ...
Abstract. Objectives: To provide a description of refractive errors in healthy, term-born children, aged 1 through 24 months, and to test the hypothesis that spherical equivalent becomes significantly less hyperopic and less variable with increasing age.Methods: This is a prospective, cross-sectional design, cycloplegic retinoscopy was used to measure the refractive error in both eyes of 100 healthy, term- born children in four age groups. Spherical equivalent, cylindrical power and axis were analyzed as a function of age.Results: Spherical equivalents of right and left eyes did not differ at any age. Hyperopia declined significantly with increasing age. The variability in spherical equivalent also decreased significantly with age. Cylindrical error of one diopter or more was found in 15% of children; the proportion with astigmatism was highest in infancy and then waned. Myopia and anisometropia were rare, occurring in 5% and 2% of the sample, respectively.Conclusions: Significant declines in ...
Amblyopia or lazy eye is the decreased ability to see detail. During early childhood years the nerve pathway from the eye to the brain does not develop as it should which causes this condition. Amblyopia is by far the leading cause of decreased vision in children. Amblyopia, or more commonly lazy eye, is poor vision in one or both eyes due to a lack of stimulation to the retina (the back inside surface of the eye that relays information to the brain) during the critical development period in childhood (from birth to around 7 - 8 years of age). Common underlying causes of a lack of stimulation include squint (misalignment of the eye), uncorrected refractive error (e.g. long-sightedness or astigmatism), ptosis (droopy upper eyelid obscuring the pupil) and cataract.. It is very important that amblyopia is detected early (approximately before the age of 7 - 8years) in order to try to improve the weak vision. If amblyopia is not detected before this critical age, treatment is less likely to be ...

A nonspecific term referring to impaired vision. Major subcategories include stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia and toxic amblyopia. Stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia is a developmental disorder of the visual cortex. A discrepancy between visual information received by the visual cortex from each eye results in abnormal cortical development. STRABISMUS and REFRACTIVE ERRORS may cause this condition. Toxic amblyopia is a disorder of the OPTIC NERVE which is associated with ALCOHOLISM, tobacco SMOKING, and other toxins and as an adverse effect of the use of some medications ...
Patching is the standard treatment for amblyopia. An opaque, adhesive patch is worn over the stronger eye for weeks to months. This therapy forces the child to use the eye with amblyopia. Patching stimulates vision in the weaker eye and helps the part of the brain that manages vision develop more completely. Generally, the patch is prescribed for the entire day while awake except for an hour to shower or bathe. The patch is prescribed for a total period equal to about one week for every year of the childs age. For example, a five-year-old child with amblyopia will have to wear the patch for about five weeks. During this time, the vision of both eyes are frequently tested, and so the actual period may be shorter or longer by one or two weeks. Compliance with wearing the eye patch is a significant problem in the treatment of amblyopia. This may be a result of the inherent discomfort of having to see with an eye with poor vision or from the discomfort of the eye patch itself. Poor compliance may ...
About Amblyopia Amblyopia is reduced vision in an eye that has not received adequate use during early childhood. What causes Amblyopia? Amblyopia, also
A childs eyes needs regular, equal use to develop normal vision. Poor vision in an eye that did not get enough use during childhood is called amblyopia (lazy eye). Treatment during early childhood can usually reverse amblyopia. Treatment after childhood is rarely helpful. A child with amblyopia who does not get treatment will probably have poor vision for the rest of his or her life.. Amblyopia is caused by any condition that affects normal use of the eyes and visual development. In many cases, the conditions associated with amblyopia may be inherited. Children in a family with a history of amblyopia or misaligned eyes should be checked by an Ophthalmologist early in life. There are 3 major causes of amblyopia in children - strabismus (turned eye), unequal focus due to refractive error or cloudiness caused by lens or corneal opacity.. Success in the treatment of amblyopia also depends upon how severe the amblyopia is and how old the child is when treatment is begun. If the problem is detected ...
Refractive amblyopia happens when there is a large or unequal amount of refractive error (glasses strength) between a childs eyes. The brain learns how to see well from the eye that has less need for glasses and does NOT learn to see well from the eye that has a greater need for glasses. The vision problem may be invisible because the child does not complain of blurry vision. The child sees well with the better seeing eye. Additionally, the amblyopic eye may not look any different from the normal seeing eye. Therefore, parents and pediatricians may not think there is a problem because the childs eyes look normal. For these reasons, this kind of amblyopia in children may not be found until the child has a vision test. This kind of amblyopia can affect one or both eyes and can be best helped if the problem is found early.. ...
Treatment of amblyopia (lazy eye) depends on the underlying cause, if the amblyopia is caused by squint (or strabismus), the stronger eye may be patched, or covered, in order to make the amblyopic eye work harder. If the cause is very short or long sight in one eye, spectacles are prescribed, sometimes with patching. If the amblyopia is due to an ocular problem such as cataract, that condition will need to be treated. After therapy the patient may require spectacles or contact lenses to restore focusing.. ...
Amblyopia: Reduced vision, usually in one eye, that is not due to disease or injury, and is largely not correctable. Possible causes for this condition include strabismus (lazy eye/eye turn), anisometropia (a large difference in the prescriptions for each eye), or any condition that affects visual development-especially in young children.. Astigmatism: A condition that causes blurred vision due either to the irregular shape of the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye, or sometimes the curvature of the lens inside the eye.. Blepharitis: An inflammation of the eyelids and eyelashes causing red, irritated, itchy eyelids and the formation of dandruff like scales on eyelashes.. Cataract: A cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye. Cataracts begin developing in early childhood and progress slowly throughout our lives. Eventually they will affect vision and are typically treated by removing the lens and replacing it with an artificial one. Other forms of cataracts include toxic, ...

We are pleased to announce the addition of the Spot Vision Testing Camera to our arsenal of diagnostic tools to help your family be its healthiest. The Spot device comes with a variety of clinical benefits over the Snellen chart. The most important benefit is that this device can be used for children who are unable to speak or read. Spot is a handheld device that works on children as young as 6 months of age up to adulthood. Spot is able to detect a variety of vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It can also detect unequal vision power (anisometropia), eye misalignment (amblyopia), unequal pupil size (anisocoria), and eye structure problems.. During the Spot exam, the child sits down and looks into the front of the device where blinking lights are shown. The device is held 3 feet away, which is great for youngsters who like their personal space. Next, a bird chirps to capture the attention of young children. In a matter of seconds a series of photos are ...
Amblyopia refers to poor vision in an eye when all other causes are discounted. Often it is confused with a squint, but amblyopia can occur even if the eyes are straight.. In amblyopia, it is important to check if glasses will sort the problem out before using occlusion. This is called Refractive Adaptation. This can take 4 months to work as unlike adults it takes some time for the brain to adapt to glasses. We only treat with Occlusion when we have the best vision from glasses.. This is also useful as the child will be able to see something rather than very little in the bad eye with occlusion and may want to continue rather than fighting with the parents.. ...

One of the easiest ways of training fine motor skills is letting your child play with different materials but it is one of the least used one.. It is a good idea to set a set up a play bench for your child with different materials on it. Different containers can be placed on the bench with different materials in them. Children will love to move water from container to container. It is not only fun but it is also a great training in motor skills.. A sand bucket is also a good way of presenting different challenges to yoru child. With addition of some water, children can already start to imagine and create sand castles.. These are some of the simplest ways to develop motor skills in your child. But there are also endless possible ways of doing that. In short, any kind of play in which your child has to exercise control over fingers and hands is an excellent starting point for this ...
The target refraction was emmetropia in the dominant eye and in the nondominant eye it was either approximately -1.5D (Blended Vision, 25 patients) or emmetropia (Emmetropic Vision, 25 patients). As a third group we considered phakic eyes (30 patients). Three months after surgery, stereopsis was tested using the Stereo Fly Test (Precision Vision), which was positioned at a distance of 16inches. Analogue to logMAR-values for visual acuity, we calculated the logartihm of the minimum angle of stereopsis (logMAS) and compared the median values of all groups. Furthermore patients answered question from a Quality of Vision questionnaire related to depth perception ...

Many different bacteria and viruses can cause conjunctivitis in the neonate. The two most common causes are N. gonorrheae and Chlamydia acquired from the birth canal during delivery. Ophthalmia neonatorum due to gonococci (Neisseria gonorrhoeae) typically manifests in the first five days post birth and is associated with marked bilateral purulent discharge and local inflammation. In contrast, conjunctivitis secondary to infection with chlamydia (Chlamydia trachomatis) produces conjunctivitis after day three post birth, but may occur up to two weeks after delivery. The discharge is usually more watery in nature (mucopurulent) and less inflamed. Babies infected with chlamydia may develop pneumonitis (chest infection) at a later stage (range 2 weeks - 19 weeks after delivery). Infants with chlamydia pneumonitis should be treated with oral erythromycin for 10-14 days.[6] Other agents causing ophthalmia neonatorum include Herpes simplex virus (HSV 2), Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus ...
Diagnosis can be established on clinical grounds and this may be enhanced with studies on surgically excised corneal tissue and in some cases with molecular genetic analyses. As clinical manifestations widely vary with the different entities, corneal dystrophies should be suspected when corneal transparency is lost or corneal opacities occur spontaneously, particularly in both corneas, and especially in the presence of a positive family history or in the offspring of consanguineous parents.. Superficial corneal dystrophies - Meesmann dystrophy is characterized by distinct tiny bubble-like, punctate opacities that form in the central corneal epithelium and to a lesser extent in the peripheral cornea of both eyes during infancy that persists throughout life. Symmetrical reticular opacities form in the superficial central cornea of both eyes at about 4-5 years of age in Reis-Bücklers corneal dystrophy. Patient remains asymptomatic until epithelial erosions precipitate acute episodes of ocular ...

BCD is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.[2] This means the defective gene responsible for the disorder is located on an autosome, and two copies of the defective gene (one inherited from each parent) are required in order to be born with the disorder. The parents of an individual with an autosomal recessive disorder both carry one copy of the defective gene, but usually do not experience any signs or symptoms of the disorder. BCD is associated with mutations in the CYP4V2 gene.[2] The nematode C. elegans has a duplicated gene (cyp31A2 and cyp31A3) that are orthologous of the human gene. These genes code for cytochrome P450s involved in fatty acid synthesis.[7] ...

Based on clinical appearance, color blindness may be described as total or partial. Total color blindness is much less common than partial color blindness.[5] There are two major types of color blindness: difficulty distinguishing between red and green, and difficulty distinguishing between blue and yellow.[6][7] Immunofluorescent imaging is a way to determine red-green color coding. Conventional color coding is difficult for individuals with red-green color blindness (protanopia or deuteranopia) to discriminate. Replacing red with magenta or green with turquoise improves visibility for such individuals.[8] The different kinds of inherited color blindness result from partial or complete loss of function of one or more of the three different cone systems.

There is currently researching being done to find more treatments dependent on the different pre-existing conditions. Studies are being conducted in which madarosis can be related to malignancy. A study by Groehler and Rose found that there was a statistical significance between these two. They concluded that patients malignancy lesions on the eyelid have a higher chance of having madarosis than a patient with a benign lesion. They stated that despite the fact that it is significant, the absence of madarosis does not mean the lesion cannot be malignant.[10] In many leprosy cases, madarosis is a symptom or a quality after diagnosis. However, in India, leprosy is common and researchers report a case of madarosis before diagnosis of leprosy with no skin lesions, only madarosis. This allowed for quicker treatment.[11] A main reason many people have madarosis is due to the chemotherapy drugs. There was a clinical trial in 2011 that tested an eyelash gel called bimatoprost. This gel enhanced the ...
