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)
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.
The muscles that move the eye. Included in this group are the medial rectus, lateral rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus, inferior oblique, superior oblique, musculus orbitalis, and levator palpebrae superioris.
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.
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.
A visual symptom in which a single object is perceived by the visual cortex as two objects rather than one. Disorders associated with this condition include REFRACTIVE ERRORS; STRABISMUS; OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES; TROCHLEAR NERVE DISEASES; ABDUCENS NERVE DISEASES; and diseases of the BRAIN STEM and OCCIPITAL LOBE.
Surgery performed on the eye or any of its parts.
The blending of separate images seen by each eye into one composite image.
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.
A condition of an inequality of refractive power of the two eyes.
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.
Deviations from the average or standard indices of refraction of the eye through its dioptric or refractive apparatus.
Change of heartbeat induced by pressure on the eyeball, manipulation of extraocular muscles, or pressure upon the tissue remaining in the orbital apex after enucleation.
Voluntary or reflex-controlled movements of the eye.
Techniques for securing together the edges of a wound, with loops of thread or similar materials (SUTURES).
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.
Involuntary movements of the eye that are divided into two types, jerk and pendular. Jerk nystagmus has a slow phase in one direction followed by a corrective fast phase in the opposite direction, and is usually caused by central or peripheral vestibular dysfunction. Pendular nystagmus features oscillations that are of equal velocity in both directions and this condition is often associated with visual loss early in life. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p272)
Perception of three-dimensionality.
Paralysis of one or more of the ocular muscles due to disorders of the eye muscles, neuromuscular junction, supporting soft tissue, tendons, or innervation to the muscles.
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.
The turning inward of the lines of sight toward each other.
The positioning and accommodation of eyes that allows the image to be brought into place on the FOVEA CENTRALIS of each eye.
A series of tests used to assess various functions of the eyes.
Refraction of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.
Images seen by one eye.
The absence or restriction of the usual external sensory stimuli to which the individual responds.
A form of spinal dysraphism associated with a protruding cyst made up of either meninges (i.e., a MENINGOCELE) or meninges in combination with spinal cord tissue (i.e., a MENINGOMYELOCELE). These lesions are frequently associated with spinal cord dysfunction, HYDROCEPHALUS, and SYRINGOMYELIA. (From Davis et al., Textbook of Neuropathology, 2nd ed, pp224-5)
A syndrome characterized by marked limitation of abduction of the eye, variable limitation of adduction and retraction of the globe, and narrowing of the palpebral fissure on attempted adduction. The condition is caused by aberrant innervation of the lateral rectus by fibers of the OCULOMOTOR NERVE.
The 3d cranial nerve. The oculomotor nerve sends motor fibers to the levator muscles of the eyelid and to the superior rectus, inferior rectus, and inferior oblique muscles of the eye. It also sends parasympathetic efferents (via the ciliary ganglion) to the muscles controlling pupillary constriction and accommodation. The motor fibers originate in the oculomotor nuclei of the midbrain.
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)
Diseases of the sixth cranial (abducens) nerve or its nucleus in the pons. The nerve may be injured along its course in the pons, intracranially as it travels along the base of the brain, in the cavernous sinus, or at the level of superior orbital fissure or orbit. Dysfunction of the nerve causes lateral rectus muscle weakness, resulting in horizontal diplopia that is maximal when the affected eye is abducted and ESOTROPIA. Common conditions associated with nerve injury include INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ISCHEMIA; and INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS.
A type of massage in which finger pressure on specific body sites is used to promote healing, relieve fatigue, etc. Although the anatomical locations are the same as the ACUPUNCTURE POINTS used in ACUPUNCTURE THERAPY (hence acu-), no needle or other acupuncture technique is employed in acupressure. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed). Shiatsu is a modern outgrowth that focuses more on prevention than healing.
A polyester used for absorbable sutures & surgical mesh, especially in ophthalmic surgery. 2-Hydroxy-propanoic acid polymer with polymerized hydroxyacetic acid, which forms 3,6-dimethyl-1,4-dioxane-dione polymer with 1,4-dioxane-2,5-dione copolymer of molecular weight about 80,000 daltons.
Drooping of the upper lid due to deficient development or paralysis of the levator palpebrae muscle.
Fractures of the bones in the orbit, which include parts of the frontal, ethmoidal, lacrimal, and sphenoid bones and the maxilla and zygoma.
The 6th cranial nerve which originates in the ABDUCENS NUCLEUS of the PONS and sends motor fibers to the lateral rectus muscles of the EYE. Damage to the nerve or its nucleus disrupts horizontal eye movement control.
A surgical specialty concerned with the structure and function of the eye and the medical and surgical treatment of its defects and diseases.
Diseases of the oculomotor nerve or nucleus that result in weakness or paralysis of the superior rectus, inferior rectus, medial rectus, inferior oblique, or levator palpebrae muscles, or impaired parasympathetic innervation to the pupil. With a complete oculomotor palsy, the eyelid will be paralyzed, the eye will be in an abducted and inferior position, and the pupil will be markedly dilated. Commonly associated conditions include neoplasms, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, ischemia (especially in association with DIABETES MELLITUS), and aneurysmal compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p270)
Disorders that feature impairment of eye movements as a primary manifestation of disease. These conditions may be divided into infranuclear, nuclear, and supranuclear disorders. Diseases of the eye muscles or oculomotor cranial nerves (III, IV, and VI) are considered infranuclear. Nuclear disorders are caused by disease of the oculomotor, trochlear, or abducens nuclei in the BRAIN STEM. Supranuclear disorders are produced by dysfunction of higher order sensory and motor systems that control eye movements, including neural networks in the CEREBRAL CORTEX; BASAL GANGLIA; CEREBELLUM; and BRAIN STEM. Ocular torticollis refers to a head tilt that is caused by an ocular misalignment. Opsoclonus refers to rapid, conjugate oscillations of the eyes in multiple directions, which may occur as a parainfectious or paraneoplastic condition (e.g., OPSOCLONUS-MYOCLONUS SYNDROME). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p240)
A surgical specialty concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the ear, nose, and throat.
Normal nystagmus produced by looking at objects moving across the field of vision.
Surgery performed on the ear and its parts, the nose and nasal cavity, or the throat, including surgery of the adenoids, tonsils, pharynx, and trachea.
Bony cavity that holds the eyeball and its associated tissues and appendages.
The white, opaque, fibrous, outer tunic of the eyeball, covering it entirely excepting the segment covered anteriorly by the cornea. It is essentially avascular but contains apertures for vessels, lymphatics, and nerves. It receives the tendons of insertion of the extraocular muscles and at the corneoscleral junction contains the canal of Schlemm. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
Instruments used to observe distant objects.
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)
Emesis and queasiness occurring after anesthesia.
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.

Risk factors for strabismus in children born before 32 weeks' gestation. (2/819)

AIM: To investigate risk factors associated with strabismus in children born prematurely. METHODS: Prospective study of all children born before 32 weeks' gestation between 1 January 1990 and 31 December 1991 in a geographically defined population of approximately 3 million in the Northern Region of the United Kingdom. All children were examined aged 2 years by the same ophthalmologist and paediatrician. RESULTS: 558 children (98.6% of study group) were examined. Logistic regression showed an increased risk of strabismus in children with cicatricial retinopathy of prematurity (p=0.02), refractive error (p=0.003), family history of strabismus (p<0.0001), and poor neurodevelopmental outcome (p<0.0001), in particular impaired locomotor skills (p=0.008) and hand-eye coordination (p=0. 001). Gestational age and regressed acute ROP were not independent risk factors for strabismus (p=0.92 and 0.85 respectively). CONCLUSIONS: This study has identified factors which are independently related to strabismus (although not necessarily causative) and others which are related only indirectly. This may contribute both to the management of children born prematurely and to future studies of the aetiology of strabismus.  (+info)

A deficit in strabismic amblyopia for global shape detection. (3/819)

Using a task which relied upon the detection of sinusoidal deformations from circularity, we show that strabismic amblyopes exhibit deficits which are not critically dependent on either the scale of deformation or the spatial frequency characteristics of the stimulus (circular D4) itself. We show that this loss is not due to the restricted passband of the amblyopic eye. Furthermore, in a pedestal distortion experiment, we show that the suprathreshold form of this loss is consistent with an elevated level of 'intrinsic noise' rather than a loss in 'sampling efficiency'.  (+info)

Orientation-based texture segmentation in strabismic amblyopia. (4/819)

Texture segmentation of 'target' Gabors from an array of 'background' Gabors was measured in terms of the difference in orientation between the two regions, as well as the difference in orientation within each region. Segmentation was shown to occur on the basis of local orientation differences at the boundary between the target and background regions (Nothdurft, H.C. (1992). Feature analysis and the role of similarity in preattentive vision. Perception and Psychophysics, 52, 355-375.). We obtained similar results for both the amblyopic and non-amblyopic eye of three strabismic amblyopes, and showed also that the effects of texture undersampling and positional jitter were similar for the two eyes. This pattern of results is consistent with intact mechanisms of texture perception in amblyopic cortex, and suggests also that any amblyopic deficits in first-order cortical units (undersampling and/or positional uncertainty) do not limit higher-order texture segmentation processes. Therefore, first- and second-order processes involved in perceptual grouping of oriented elements (that appear to be abnormal in amblyopic cortex; Kovacs, I., Polat, U., Norcia, A.M. (1996). Breakdown of binding mechanisms in amblyopia. Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology Abstracts; Mussap, A.J., Levi, D.M. (1995). Amblyopic deficits in perception of second-order orientation. Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science (Supplement), 36, S634; Mussap, A.J., Levi, D.M. (1998). Amblyopic deficits in perceptual grouping. Vision Research, submitted) do not contribute to texture perception based on orientation contrast.  (+info)

Position jitter and undersampling in pattern perception. (5/819)

The present paper addresses whether topographical jitter or undersampling might limit pattern perception in foveal, peripheral and strabismic amblyopic vision. In the first experiment, we measured contrast thresholds for detecting and identifying the orientation (up, down, left, right) of E-like patterns comprised of Gabor samples. We found that detection and identification thresholds were both degraded in peripheral and amblyopic vision; however, the orientation identification/detection threshold ratio was approximately the same in foveal, peripheral and amblyopic vision. This result is somewhat surprising, because we anticipated that a high degree of uncalibrated topographical jitter in peripheral and amblyopic vision would have affected orientation identification to a greater extent than detection. In the second experiment, we investigated the tolerance of human and model observers to perturbation of the positions of the samples defining the pattern when its contrast was suprathreshold, by measuring a 'jitter threshold' (the amount of jitter required to reduce performance from near perfect to 62.5% correct). The results and modeling of our jitter experiments suggest that pattern identification is highly robust to positional jitter. The positional tolerance of foveal, peripheral and amblyopic vision is equal to about half the separation of the features and the close similarity between the three visual systems argues against extreme topographical jitter. The effects of jitter on human performance are consistent with the predictions of a 'template' model. In the third experiment we determined what fraction of the 17 Gabor samples are needed to reliably identify the orientation of the E-patterns by measuring a 'sample threshold' (the proportion of samples required for 62.5% correct performance). In foveal vision, human observers are highly efficient requiring only about half the samples for reliable pattern identification. Relative to an ideal observer model, humans perform this task with 85% efficiency. In contrast, in both peripheral vision and strabismic amblyopia more samples are required. The increased number of features required in peripheral vision and strabismic amblyopia suggests that in these visual systems, the stimulus is underrepresented at the stage of feature integration.  (+info)

Assessment of cortical dysfunction in human strabismic amblyopia using magnetoencephalography (MEG). (6/819)

The aim of this study was to use the technique of magnetoencephalography (MEG) to determine the effects of strabismic amblyopia on the processing of spatial information within the occipital cortex of humans. We recorded evoked magnetic responses to the onset of a chromatic (red/green) sinusoidal grating of periodicity 0.5-4.0 c deg-1 using a 19-channel SQUID-based neuromagnetometer. Evoked responses were recorded monocularly on six amblyopes and six normally-sighted controls, the stimuli being positioned near the fovea in the lower right visual field of each observer. For comparison, the spatial contrast sensitivity function (CSF) for the detection of chromatic gratings was measured for one amblyope and one control using a two alternate forced-choice psychophysical procedure. We chose red/green sinusoids as our stimuli because they evoke strong magnetic responses from the occipital cortex in adult humans (Fylan, Holliday, Singh, Anderson & Harding. (1997). Neuroimage, 6, 47-57). Magnetic field strength was plotted as a function of stimulus spatial frequency for each eye of each subject. Interocular differences were only evident within the amblyopic group: for stimuli of 1-2 c deg-1, the evoked responses had significantly longer latencies and reduced amplitudes through the amblyopic eye (P < 0.05). Importantly, the extent of the deficit was uncorrelated with either Snellen acuity or contrast sensitivity. Localization of the evoked responses was performed using a single equivalent current dipole model. Source localizations, for both normal and amblyopic subjects, were consistent with neural activity at the occipital pole near the V1/V2 border. We conclude that MEG is sensitive to the deficit in cortical processing associated with human amblyopia, and can be used to make quantitative neurophysiological measurements. The nature of the cortical deficit is discussed.  (+info)

The puzzle of autism: an ophthalmologic contribution. (7/819)

PURPOSE: A previous study of 86 thalidomide-affected subjects with ophthalmic manifestations revealed the unexpected finding of autism in 4 of the 5 severely retarded individuals. The subjects had anomalies associated with an early gestational effect of thalidomide, including facial nerve palsy and incomitant strabismus. Because autism has been observed in a few cases of Mobius sequence (Mobius syndrome), a condition characterized by involvement of the sixth and seventh cranial nerves, the similarity to early thalidomide embryopathy suggested a relation between cranial nerve involvement and autism. The present study was undertaken to further evaluate the association of autism with patients manifesting findings of Mobius syndrome. METHODS: A prospective study of 25 Swedish patients with Mobius sequence was conducted. The patients had a complete multidisciplinary evaluation, including ophthalmologic and psychiatric examinations and standard testing for autism. Findings associated with autism were compared with the ocular and systemic anomalies of the 4 thalidomide-affected subjects. RESULTS: In the Mobius group 6 patients had autism, achieving the criteria for autism according to all the diagnostic manuals that were used. One patient showed autistic-like conditions meeting fewer numbers of the criteria. A few were too young to be meeting evaluated. Incomitant strabismus ranging from primary abduction defects alone to a horizontal gaze paresis pattern was noted in these patients, in addition to characteristic findings of seventh nerve paresis. Aberrant lacrimation was observed in many cases, especially often associated with autism. CONCLUSION: The common group of anomalies noted in both cases of thalidomide embryopathy and Mobius sequence suggests that brain-stem damage probably early in embryogenesis can sometimes be associated with autism.  (+info)

The therapy of amblyopia: an analysis of the results of amblyopia therapy utilizing the pooled data of published studies. (8/819)

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)

PURPOSE: To investigate the influence of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and mitomycin C (MMC) on the postoperative adhesions following strabismus surgery in rabbits. METHODS: Twenty-one New Zealand white rabbits were used in this prospective, masked, controlled trial. Both eyes of 20 animals underwent 3-mm recession of the superior rectus muscle (SRM). In group I (10 animals), one eye of each animal received topical application of MMC (0.2 mg/ml) for 5 minutes and the other eye (control eye) was treated with balanced salt solution (BSS) using an intraoperative sponge. In group II (10 animals), a randomly chosen eye of each animal was treated with 5-FU soaked sponges (50 mg/ml) for 5 minutes and the fellow eye (control eye) with BSS. Two eyes of a rabbit were included as unoperated controls. Four weeks after the surgery, conjunctival vascularity and postoperative adhesions between the SRM Tenons capsule (TC) and SRM sclera (scl) were assessed. Additionally, eyes were enucleated and evaluated ...

The present study demonstrated that, for pediatric patients undergoing strabismus surgery under sevoflurane anesthesia, combined use of 0.5 ug/kg DEX reduced the rate of OCR during the operation as well as the incidence of PONV during the 24 hours after surgery. However, it did not reduce the occurrence of POV during the 24 hours after surgery.. As a common surgical operation in children, strabismus surgery carries a high risk of PONV for pediatric patients. There are four risk factors for PONV or POV in pediatric anesthesia: duration of surgery longer than 30 minutes, age≥3 years, previous PONV or a positive family history, and strabismus surgery [2]. The patients recruited in our study (aged 6-10 years old, undergoing strabismus surgery) are considered highly susceptible for PONV. In attempts to reduce the incidence PONV in patients with risk factors, multiple studies have shown that multimodal antiemetic therapies are more beneficial than a single approach [17, 18].. Previous studies ...
Many adult patients with strabismus are under the misconception that nothing can be done to correct the problem or that treatment is associated with a high degree of risk. Moreover, many optometrists, comprehensive ophthalmologists and primary care physicians are similarly misinformed. In fact, most adult patients with strabismus can be successfully treated, with ∼80% of patients achieving satisfactory alignment with one surgical procedure. In addition, adult strabismus surgery carries a relatively low risk, with serious complications being anecdotal and rare. The majority of adults will experience some improvement in binocular function after strabismus surgery even if the strabismus has been longstanding. Most commonly this takes the form of an expansion of binocular visual fields; however, some patients may also regain stereopsis. Consequently, strabismus surgery in adults is not merely cosmetic in most cases. There are many psychological and interpersonal benefits to adult strabismus ...
The strabismus angle in the primary position was measured using the APCT. The strabismus angle was evaluated as the mean value of the distant-view strabismus angle (measured at a distance of 5 m) and the near-view strabismus angle (measured at a distance of 33 cm). Every participants evaluation was performed in the same affected eye (left or right) throughout the study period. The values were summarized for observed cases for percent change from Baseline in the strabismus angle in the primary position at Weeks 1, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, and 48 (before reinjection of the second treatment period if applicable) after the final injection of the FTP (after randomization in non-treatment groups; up to a maximum of 52 weeks of the FTP). Percent change from Baseline in the strabismus angle was calculated as: (absolute angle [strabismus angle at Baseline minus the strabismus angle after the final injection] divided by the absolute strabismus angle at Baseline) multiplied ...
There are many different types of strabismus. Strabismus is most commonly described by the direction of the eye misalignment; common types of strabismus are esotropia, exotropia, hypotropia, and hypertropia.. Strabismus can also be described by its cause. The 3 cranial nerves (III, IV, VI) responsible for eye movement can be weak or palsied and cause strabismus. Some examples of paralytic strabismus include third nerve palsy and superior oblique palsy.. Special patterns of strabismus can have unique names such as Brown syndrome, and Duane syndrome.. ...
Purpose: : We previously developed the Amblyopia and Strabismus Questionnaire (A&SQ) to measure the quality of life of amblyopia and/or strabismus with a disease specific questionnaire. A large historic cohort that had been treated for amblyopia 35 years ago and had filled out the A&SQ (N=174) has been orthoptically re-examined for the clinical validation of the A&SQ. To estimate the absolute measure of quality of life in amblyopia and strabismus patients, utility analysis was performed in the historic cohort Methods: : Subjects of the historic cohort were first asked which eye condition troubled the most: the amblyopic eye, the squinting eye, or the lack of depth vision. Then Standard Gamble (SG) and Time Tradeoff (TTO) forced choices were presented to the subjects of the historic cohort. The TTO and SG outcomes were converted into utility values by subtracting the obtained value from 1.0 (perfect vision and not prepared to give up any time or take any risk). Then the utility values were ...
Strabismus is rather common, with statistics showing approximately 2% of all children afflicted with it. Diagnosis of strabismus at an early age by an ophthalmologist and optometrist who specializes in strabismus can be critical in the success of strabismus treatment and in the prevention of a lazy eye.. Strabismus treatment can be performed surgically or optically, or a combination of the two. Optic treatment of strabismus generally involves use of a monofocal lens and inclusion of prisms based on the type of strabismus, while customizing the eyeglass frame to the lens. Another treatment for strabismus, and particularly accommodative estropia, involves multifocal lenses. Special multifocal lenses are occasionally required that are designed using advanced technology of simultaneous vision and preference. ...

Abstract Background  We recently developed the Amblyopia & Strabismus Questionnaire (A&SQ) to assess the quality of life in amblyopia and/or strabismus patients, and evaluated its content and criterion validity. The A&SQ was now validated clinically by correlating its outcome with past and current orthoptic parameters in a historic cohort of amblyopia and/or strabismus patients. Methods  The cohort was derived from all 471 patients who were treated by occlusion therapy in the Waterland Hospital in Purmerend between 1968 and 1974 and born between 1962 and 1972. All children with insufficient visual acuity from the Waterland area had been referred to a single ophthalmologist and orthoptist. Of these, 203 were traced, and 174 filled out the A&SQ. In 137 of these, binocular vision, visual acuity, and angle of strabismus were reassessed 30â€Â35 years after occlusion therapy. These clinical parameters were correlated with the five A&SQ domains: ...
Adult strabismus can be associated with residual strabismus from childhood or can develop later in life. Adult onset strabismus can be associated with neurological conditions (stroke), injury or thyroid disease. Many patients who develop strabismus during adulthood can have double vision.. The symptoms of diplopia can sometimes be improved with the use of prismatic correction in eyeglasses if the misalignment is small. For larger angle misalignment, eye muscle surgery may be indicated. Also, strabismus affects adults in emotional, social, and economical ways. Realigning the eyes can reconstruct the abnormal appearance of the eyes providing a better quality of life ...

Few studies have investigated the relationship between strabismus and balance, and those that do exist focused on patients within a limited age range, while no studies on possible age-related changes have yet been conducted. Therefore, the aim of our study was to investigate whether the balance strategies adopted by patients with congenital or early onset strabismus change with age. Forty strabismic patients and 36 healthy subjects were enrolled in the study. Both patients and healthy subjects were divided into three subgroups according to age (children, adolescents, and adults) and underwent a stabilometric evaluation. When we compared the whole group of strabismic patients with the group of healthy subjects, we found that the center of pressure area and the trunk oscillations in the former were significantly different from those in the latter; when we considered the three age groups separately, only values in children with strabismus were different from those in the age-matched control group ...
What is strabismus? Strabismus, or misaligned eyes, can cause the eyes to deviate in many directions - eyes can either be crossed in, drift out, or one may be higher than the other. Typically, strabismus in adults is a result of childhood strabismus that was not treated or progressive strabismus from injury or disease
Treatment for strabismus includes glasses or contact lenses, prism lenses, vision therapy, or surgery. Depending on the cause of the strabismus, the correction of a large farsighted prescription with glasses or contacts can eliminate a strabismus. Prism can also be placed in glasses to alter the pathway of light entering the eye. There by, decreasing the amount of turning required by the eye to view an object or eliminate the strabismus completely. Vision therapy can be used to strengthen and reinforce proper eye-teaming and focusing as well and the connection between the brain and eyes. With appropriate exercise treatments, the eye muscles can strengthen themselves allowing proper eye alignment. If amblyopia occurs secondary to strabismus, patching and vision therapy may be required to improve vision in the affected eye. Surgery can alter muscle length and placement to align the eyes and improve cosmesis and function. However, vision therapy may be required post-surgery to improve functional ...
Strabismus surgery should NOT be considered as just a cosmetic procedure. Misaligned eyes are not a normal state. Misaligned eyes affect ones ability to see, communicate, gain social acceptance, find a job, make friends, seek a life partner and avert depression. Therefore strabismus surgery is more proprely referred to as a RECONSTRUCTIVE rather than just cosmetic. ...
Objective: To describe the incidence and types of adult-onset strabismus in a geographically defined population.Design: Retrospectively reviewed population-based cohort.Participants: All adult (≥19 years of age) residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, diagnosed with new-onset adult strabismus from January 1, 1985, through December 31, 2004.Methods: The medical records of all potential cases identified by the resources of the Rochester Epidemiology Project were reviewed.Main Outcome Measures: Incidence rates for adult-onset strabismus and its types.Results: Seven hundred fifty-three cases of new-onset adult strabismus were identified during the 20-year period, yielding an annual age- and gender-adjusted incidence rate of 54.1 cases (95% confidence interval, 50.2-58.0) per (Read more...)

CONTEXT: Surgery for horizontal strabismus reportedly has a success rate of 60%-80%. However, which preoperative factors are predictive of this success is not clear. AIMS: To identify prognostic factors those are predictive of successful outcome in horizontal strabismus surgery. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Observational analytical study using multiple logistic regression (MLR). SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We assessed the medical records of patients who had undergone first-time horizontal muscle strabismus surgery between 2002 and 2013, where complete follow-up data were available for ≥6 weeks, and also, we collected data prospectively on patients operated between January 2014 and September 2015 ...
Cosmetic facial fillers used in eye lifts and other such procedures can often unleash a cascade of deleterious ocular effects, according to research. The materials injected into the lids and periocular area can paralyze the extraocular muscles, which leads to iatrogenic central retinal artery or ophthalmic artery occlusion approximately half the time. A third of patients will develop strabismus. Many patients will return to the surgery center to correct the strabismus, but a new study is showing not everyone can achieve the best results. When these patients develop strabismus, surgery is only successful when patients dont have persistent ophthalmoplegia at the time of the procedure, the study shows.1. The study looked over the records of 23 patients who had suffered occlusion of the ophthalmic artery and its branches after undergoing cosmetic facial filler injections, six of whom underwent strabismus surgery. The investigators looked at the patients initial, preoperative and final ocular ...
BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment of myopic strabismus fixus is challenging. Options for its correction range from conventional combined recession-resection surgery to innovative surgical procedures aiming to correct the deviated muscle paths. In this report we review our experience and compare the results of various surgical options for treatment of strabismus fixus. METHODS: We report the surgical outcomes of nine adults with acquired strabismus fixus due to myopia with a follow-up of 1 year. Patients were enrolled between May 2003 and April 2007 in this retrospective study. The surgical procedure was determined depending on the angle of deviation and extent of motility impairment. A new transposition technique was performed in one patient who had an extreme variant of strabismus fixus. RESULTS: Combined recession-resection surgery was performed in four patients with resulting small-angle esotropia. In patients with both esotropia and hypotropia due to muscle alignment, we performed an additional ...
Prospective, double-blind study comparing Palonosetron and Dexamethasone in the prophylaxis of Post-Operative Nausea and Vomiting in children submitted to Strabismus surgery ABSTRACT Background: Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is one of the main causes of patient and family dissatisfaction, which may delay the onset of oral intake and postpone discharge. In pediatric patients, the incidence of PONV is high, and in some studies it can reach values of 70%. Strabismus surgery is considered an independent risk factor for PONV. Palonosetron is a second generation antiemetic drug, 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor antagonist, with a long half-life, which allows single dose administration and has been shown to be safe and effective in the treatment of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, and has been used with satisfactory results in the prophylaxis of PONV in adult and pediatric patients. Studies involving palonosetron are still scarce.. Objective: The study aims to compare the incidence of ...

Abstract: : Purpose: To investigate the treatment effect of A-pattern strabismus by weakening procedures of superior oblique muscle. Methods: The clinical features and types of surgeries of 35 cases of A-pattern strabismus admitted in the Department of Strabismus in Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center were analyzed. 17 patients were males,18 cases were females, aged from 5-15 years, average 21 years. Results: 69 eyes of 34 cases had SOOA. 60 eyes of 30 cases have undergone bilateral weakening procedure of SO, 4 cases unilateral weakening procedure of SO. 64 eyes of 34 cases had normal action of SO after surgery. A-pattern in all 35 cases disappeared, 31 cases(88.6%) had normal alignment (horizontal strabismus less than 5 degrees). Conclusion: The SOOA is the main feature of A-pattern strabismus. Weakening procedure of SO is important to correct the A-pattern strabismus. The horizontal deviation can be corrected by the procedure of medial or lateral rectus muscle. ...
When the eyes are turned in (crossed eyes), it is known as an esotropia. When the eyes are turned out, it is known as an exotropia. Less often, the eye can turned up or down (hypertropia and hypotropia). There can be a combination of the above. ​. A strabismus can cause decreased vision, and when detected early in a child, patching of the unaffected eye may be required to ensure visual development proceeds in the affected eye. In adults, a strabismus can cause double vision, whilst some perceive this as just blurring. ​. The misalignment can be present intermittently, and can be more noticeable when the patient is tired. Some strabismus can be stable, others get worse over times. ​. Treatment can involve eye patching, eye glasses and/or eye muscle surgery. Surgery may be required to improve the alignment of the eyes. This involves release or shortening of the affected external eye muscle and reattaching the muscles on one or both eyes. Glasses may still be required after surgery. Multiple ...
Light reflex testing (called Hirschberg testing) involves directing a patient to look at a point of light held about three feet from the patients face. If the light reflexes are located in the same spot in each pupil, the reflexes are symmetric and the eyes are straight. If the light reflexes fall asymmetrically in the pupils, strabismus may be present. Hirschberg testing estimates the size of the strabismus by determining how far the deviated light reflex is off-center. Krimsky light reflex testing involves holding a prism over one eye to center the deviated light reflex until the reflexes are symmetric. The amount of the prism needed to center the deviated light reflex estimates the size of the eye misalignment. Light reflex testing is the least accurate way to measure strabismus but may be the only means possible in young children and in those with vision too poor to fixate on a target well.. ...

Research using Rochester Epidemiology Project data to explore the incidence and demographics of new-onset strabismus and its types in adults shows ocular misalignment among adults differs significantly from pediatric strabismus.
Strabismus is a visual defect in which the eyes are misaligned and point in different directions, inward or outward (crossed eyes). The disorder is common among children, but is also present in approximately 1 to 2 percent of the adult population - usually as a condition that began in childhood or acquired, most commonly as a result of thyroid eye disease or cranial nerve palsies.. Eye misalignment causes the brain to receive two different visual messages. In young children, the brain may begin to ignore the image sent by the deviating eye while highly detailed visual information may be processed from the straight eye. This may result in amblyopia.. Strabismus is also frequently accompanied by defective or absent binocular vision, which is characterized by reduced 3-D vision, resulting in impaired depth perception.. Parents should realize that children usually do not outgrow strabismus and that treatment, whether glasses, exercises, or eye muscle surgery, is most effective when initiated early ...
Thirty years ago, Gobin and Bierlaagh developed the simultaneous horizontal and cyclovertical strabismus surgery that became a recognized, albeit much debated method, but no manual on the subject was available until now. The book is aimed at ophthalmologists interested in strabismus. It is also intended for orthoptists, in view of the importance of examining ocular motility. Although the ophthalmologist remains responsible for the surgical indication, the active participation of the orthoptist is advantageous. The analysis of incomitances of the eye movements is discussed extensively, as it is the keystone of simultaneous surgery. For the same reason, great attention is given to the surgical indications. The chapter on oculomotor disturbances is completed with a series of examples of the most common motility disorders and the indications for their surgical treatment. Surgery is covered in detail. Primary surgery is discussed in the same section as surgery for under and overcorrection. Since a ...
Strabismus or crossed-eyes. Strabismus is one of the most common eye problems in children in which the eyes are misaligned. The eyes (one or both) may turn inward, outward, turn up, or turn down. At times, more than one of these conditions are present. Strabismus is also called wandering eye or crossed-eyes. Children younger than 6 months of age may have a common form of strabismus that comes and goes. This type of strabismus may be normal. Most strabismus is caused by abnormality of neuromuscular (including brain) control of eye movement. Strabismus as a result of poor muscle strength in the eye is less common.The signs and symptoms of strabismus may include a child squinting his or her eyes, a child that cannot properly judge distance to pick up objects, a child that closes one eye to see better, dizziness, or the childs eyes move inward or outward. Early diagnosis of the underlying problem is essential in order to prevent vision loss. Treatment of strabismus may include patching the ...
Without these driving instructions the eyes will often revert back to crossing leading to follow-up surgeries. Now, the thing that strabismus has going for it is usually the fact that in essence the eyes are healthy and the brain just needs to learn how to control and use them. So the last thing you want to do is to actually damage the eyes or its surrounding muscles by cutting them up and reattaching them one or several times. So if you were to opt for surgery, and this piece of advice is based on my own personal experience, I strongly urge you to look for the best surgeon around. Do your due diligence. As in any profession, not all surgeons are created equal. Strabismus surgery is no small matter. Check it out on Youtube if you dont believe me. You dont go in there and come out the next day That was fun! Whats next!? Otra cosa mariposa!. A good surgeon will minimize damage and scar tissue while optimizing eye motility and posture which will allow the child to develop his vision ...
My second strabismus surgery is scheduled for Thursday December 7 (See update below.) I was a little surprised when a friend prayed for me a couple days ago
The management of strabismus may include the use of drugs or surgery to correct the strabismus. Strabismus is a misalignment of the eyes and may also result in amblyopia (lazy eye) or impairments of binocular vision. Agents used include paralytic agents such as botox used on extraocular muscles, topical autonomic nervous system agents to alter the refractive index in the eyes, and agents that act in the central nervous system to correct amblyopia. Pharmacologic injection treatments can be given to cooperative adults under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, and for some agents, under light general anesthesia. In the former case, it is possible to bring the injection needle to an optimal location in the desired muscle using EMG guidance as the alert patient looks in diagnostic directions, the needle is advanced until the electromyogram (the electrical signal from an activated skeletal muscle) indicates it is optimally positioned, whereupon the injection is completed. Some agents (e.g., ...
In 2007, I published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology a new, minimally invasive access technique for primary horizontal rectus muscle recession and plication and its results.1 I suggested performing these types of surgeries using only two, small parainsertional openings. The term minimally invasive surgery (MISS) was proposed for all types of strabismus surgeries (1) minimizing the … ...
Treatment. Treatment for strabismus involves a few steps. First, your eye doctor will determine whether you need glasses. Then, he or she will treat your amblyopia. This typically involves wearing a patch over the stronger eye, forcing the weak eye to work harder. This can be frustrating and tiring, but is an important step.. Next, you might need surgery to help the eye muscles work together correctly. This surgery can be done at any age. Eye alignment surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure, often with local or regional anesthetic. However, in some cases, it might require hospitalization. Most people can return to their regular activities within a few days. Your doctor might restrict swimming and heavy lifting for several weeks.. The reasons to have eye alignment surgery go way beyond cosmetic benefits. Eye misalignment can cause disabling and dangerous double vision. Since people with strabismus are often self-conscious about this condition, getting alignment surgery may ...

To estimate the prevalence of strabismus in Natal, Brazil, among elementary and high school students of the public and private educational systems, in addition to detecting etiological factors. Methods: 1024 students were randomly selected and submitted to a questionnaire and a complete ophthalmologic examination, by professors and resident physicians in Ophthalmology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte. Results: Of 1024 students, 1015 were examined; 29 were found to have strabismus (2.9%), 20 of whom had manifest exotropia (2%), 2 had intermittent exotropia (0.2%), 6 had esotropia (0.6%) and 1 had V anisotropies (0.1%). Conclusions: The strabismus prevalence of the student population of Natal falls within the range of the worldwide population. There was ocular lesion in only one student (retinochoroiditis scar on the posterior pole in both eyes) related to ...

Cole Eye Institute considers the outcome of surgery for strabismus in adults to be good if there is: (1) disappearance of diplopia and/or anomalous head position in primary position of gaze or (2) in the absence of diplopia or anomalous head position, a constant deviation of , 10 prism diopters (D). In children, a good outcome is defined as: (1) a constant deviation of , 10 prism D in primary position or (2) the disappearance of anomalous head position for those in whom the surgery was done for that purpose, such as patients with a 4th nerve palsy, Brown syndrome, or Duane syndrome. The results shown reflect reviews of follow-up visits during each calendar year. Hence, follow-up data for some patients are not included here, nor are long-term outcomes.. Between January and December 2018, 310 strabismus procedures were performed by 5 surgeons; 196 procedures were performed on children and 114 on adults (defined as age 16 years or older).. ...
Clinical Evaluation of Horizontal Pediatric Strabismus and the Management Challenges. By Lawan Abdu. Pediatric strabismus is not uncommon. Poor knowledge and religious and cultural practices result in inattention to the childs need and stigmatization. Horizontal strabismus consisting of esotropia and exotropia constitutes the common types presenting. Childhood ocular deviations are associated with uncorrected refractive errors, diseases causing obstruction of the visual axis such as cataract, and intra ocular tumors commonly retinoblastoma. In parts of the developing world, there is poor documentation and recollection of medical events at family and community levels. Squint in a child is not a painful dramatic condition that can prompt quick action from the parents or caregiver. There is generalized inequity in access to health care. Pediatric ophthalmic services are at best in developmental stage, and purpose design service centers are quite few. Neglect of the causes and timely treatment of ...
Childrens development is an intrinsically complex and important stage. At this point in their lives, many things can become complicated, diagnosed and, most importantly, successfully treated. Especially for eye conditions, early diagnosis is crucial!. This is because early diagnosis gives a better chance for a successful and quicker recovery. For this reason our pediatric eye doctor encourages parents to take their children to an ophthalmologist even with the slightest suspicions, or as early as around the age of 2 years old.. In 5 common eye and vision problems experienced by children we outline the conditions that you should keep an eye for in your children as these occur commonly in the US. One of the conditions on the list is strabismus, and our childrens ophthalmologist is a certified strabismus surgeon. Therefore, below we explain what strabismus is and in an upcoming article we will talk about the causes and treatment options.. Click the link below to find out more:. ...
Many things and/or events can cause a strabismus. They include genetics, inappropriate development of the fusion center of the brain, problems with the controlled center of the brain, injuries to muscles or nerves or other problems involving the muscles or nerves. Surprisingly, most cases of strabismus are not a result of a muscle problem, but are due to the control system - the brain.. Treatment should be directed at the source of the problem. The eye doctor must determine if the strabismus is due to an eyeglass problem or brain problem. Sometimes, bifocals are needed to eliminate the eye turn.. Different Types Have Different ...
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 ...
The factors that influence a normal corneal topography are not well understood. Factors that may change the corneal curvature measured using corneal topography in a normal eye include accommodation and external forces such as those exerted by the eye lid [6]. Suture and muscle placement are the mechanical forces that may alter the corneal curvature. If a muscle is placed too close to the limbus or tied to the sclera under tightly, the corneal curvature might be altered [2]. Although it has been reported that there are changes of the corneal curvature following extraocular muscle surgery, the effect was also known to be transient [2, 7]. This study demonstrated that there are a corneal topography changes following horizontal muscle strabismus correction surgery, however the effect is transient. Corneal topography measurement 6 weeks after the operation was significantly different than that before operation (mean difference = 0.210±0.096, p=0.029). There was a significant difference in corneal ...
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 ...

BACKGROUND: Many patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) have been developed and/or used to measure the impact of amblyopia and strabismus on quality of life (QoL). Identifying the one with superior quality is important for evaluating the effectiveness of novel therapy for amblyopia and for directing improved clinical decision-making in adults considering strabismic surgery. Therefore, the aim of this review is to identify all PROMs previously developed/used to study the impact of amblyopia and/or strabismus on QoL and to appraise the quality and comprehensiveness of content of the disease-specific instruments ...

The course consisted of a didactic session followed by a wet laboratory session. The wet
The Oculocardiac reflex, also known as Aschner phenomenon, Aschner reflex, or Aschner-Dagnini reflex, is a decrease in pulse rate associated with traction applied to extraocular muscles and/or compression of the eyeball. The reflex is mediated by nerve connections between the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal cranial nerve via the ciliary ganglion, and the vagus nerve of the parasympathetic nervous system. Nerve fibres from the maxillary and mandibular divisions of the trigeminal nerve have also been documented. These afferents synapse with the visceral motor nucleus of the vagus nerve, located in the reticular formation of the brain stem. The efferent portion is carried by the vagus nerve from the cardiovascular center of the medulla to the heart, of which increased stimulation leads to decreased output of the sinoatrial node. This reflex is especially sensitive in neonates and children, particularly during strabismus correction surgery. However, this reflex may also occur with adults. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Ipsilateral hypertropia after cataract surgery. AU - Capo, H.. AU - Guyton, D. L.. PY - 1996/1/1. Y1 - 1996/1/1. N2 - Background: Reports of acquired strabismus caused by injection of local anesthetics during cataract surgery have increased recently. The authors proposed a mechanism to explain the occurrence of strabismus with apparent overactive muscles after cataract surgery. Methods: The authors studied 19 patients in whom strabismus developed after cataract surgery. Prism and cover test in the diagnostic positions of gaze and forced-duction testing were used to identify the affected muscles. Results: The deviation was greater in the field of action of the presumed tight muscle in 16 of 19 patients. An ipsilateral hypertropia with superior rectus muscle overaction subsequently developed in two patients with an initial hypotropia. An overaction of the ipsilateral lateral rectus muscle causing an exotropia developed in one patient with initially limited abduction. Conclusions: ...
The oculocardiac reflex may occur when there is stimulation of the ophthalmic branch of the fifth cranial nerve, such as with traction on an extraocular muscle. This results in vagal stimulation, which may be followed by bradycardia or other cardiac changes.
A set of prismatic strabismus compensators is designed to measure the squint angle or squint angle compensation for orthopto-diploptic treatment in the ophthalmologic clinics, eyesight test cabinets and in the ophthalmologic departments of hospitals specialized in the treatment of strabismus. Method of application The doctor is located opposite the patient at a distance from 0.67 m to 1 m. A patient is put on a test universal eye-glass rim with a precisely set interpupillary distance. If necessary, you could install lenses in the test the eye-glass rim to correct ametropia. The patient should fix a point source of light or another fixation object located at a distance of 30 cm from the patient (when measuring the squint angle for close distance). At measuring the angle of strabismus for the distance, the patient records the optotypes of the table for checking visual acuity corresponding to his visual acuity from a distance of 5 m. An alternating cover test is conducted to detect the presence and ...
Aim: To determine the efficacy and safety of keratorefractive surgery in patients with accommodative and non-accommodative strabismus in a prospective study. Methods: Preoperative assessment included uncorrected (UCVA) and best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), manifest and cycloplegic refraction and orthoptic examination. LASIK, LASEK and Artisan phakic intraocular lens implantation were performed. All treated eyes had BCVA of at least 6/18 preoperatively. One year postoperatively, visual acuity, refractive error and ocular alignment were reassessed. Results: 28 patients (9 male, 19 female) of mean age 33.0±10.0 years (range 20 to 59). Esotropia was present in 16 patients; 9 fully accommodative, 3 partially accommodative and 4 non-accommodative. Twelve patients had exodeviations; 10 exotropia and 2 exophoria and history of strabismus surgery. Excellent visual and refractive outcomes were obtained postoperatively. There was no loss and one eye gained a line of BCVA. Fully accommodative esotropes ...
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..

My name is Michael Lievens (°89). Ive had strabismus ever since I was three years old. I have undergone three eye muscle surgeries at the ages of 16, 18 and 19. Surgery only worsened the double vision and lack of ocular control which were impeding me from reading and studying properly at University. Ultimately, in total desperation, I discovered something called Vision Therapy or Visual Neuro-Rehabilitation on the internet. I have consistently been pursuing this avenue ever since with slow but definite success. My double vision is already in the past and my binocular vision continues to improve ...
Amblyopia is a neurodevelopmental disorder of the visual system that is caused by abnormal binocular visual experience during early childhood, typically due to anisometropia or strabismus [1]. Amblyopia causes a range of monocular deficits in the affected eye including impaired visual acuity [1], contrast sensitivity [2], motion perception [3, 4] and excessive crowding [5] (see [6] for a recent review). Patients with amblyopia also experience impaired binocular vision. In particular, the fellow eye often suppresses the amblyopic eye when both eyes are open, and stereopsis is commonly impaired or absent [7]. Stronger interocular suppression has been associated with poorer stereopsis and monocular visual acuity in patients [8-11], as well as poorer amblyopic eye contrast sensitivity in animal models of amblyopia [12, 13].. In children, the visual acuity deficit associated with amblyopia can be treated monocularly by optically correcting any significant refractive error and then occluding ...

Amblyopia is the leading cause of vision loss in children. It is treatable if diagnosed early, making identification of affected children critical. The American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that clinicians routinely perform age-appropriate vision chart testing, red reflex testing, and examination for signs of strabismus. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends vision screening for all children at least once between three and five years of age to detect the presence of amblyopia or its risk factors. Photoscreening may be a useful adjunct to traditional vision screening, but there is limited evidence that it improves visual outcomes. Treatments for amblyopia include patching, atropine eye drops, and optical penalization of the nonamblyopic eye. In children with moderate amblyopia, patching for two hours daily is as effective as patching for six hours daily, and daily atropine is as effective as daily patching. Children
My son Jaxon is almost 5 years old. We noticed something was going on with his eyes just shortly after his 1st birthday. I recall looking through photos from his birthday party and noticing that the red reflex (red eye) existed in just one of his eyes. The other eye did not have red eye from the camera flash. I thought that was a little odd. At that point every now and then when he would look at me I couldnt quite tell if he was look at me or past me. We then made an appointment to have his eyes checked. Turns out Jaxon has both strabismus and amblyopia in his right eye. We went to his eye doctor regularly and Jaxon screamed and screamed at every appointment for nearly 2 years. The doctor and her assistant were so kind and helpful and really did their best to work with him and try to measure his eye turn but invariably after 5 or 10 minutes it would turn into a cry/scream fest. Im sure it has nothing to do with his redhead temperament.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cortical correlates of amblyopia. AU - Kiorpes, Lynne. AU - Daw, Nigel. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - There are many levels of disorder in amblyopic vision, from basic acuity and contrast sensitivity loss to abnormal binocular vision and global perception of motion and form. Amblyopia treatment via patching to restore acuity often leaves other aspects of vision deficient. The source for these additional deficits is unclear. Neural correlates of poor binocular function and acuity loss are found in V1 and V2. However, they are generally not sufficient to account for behaviorally measured vision loss. This review summarizes the known cortical correlates of visual deficits found in association with amblyopia, particularly those relevant to binocular vision and higher-order visual processing, in striate and extrastriate cortex. Recommendations for future research address open questions on the role of suppression and oculomotor abnormalities in amblyopic vision, and underexplored ...

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 ...
