Purpose: The type of horizontal strabismus from loss or impairment of vision is thought to depend on patient age at the time of vision loss. Association between the age at onset of vision loss and development of esotropia vs exotropia will be determined. Methods: Patients with a diagnosis of sensory strabismus and visual acuity of 20/40 or poorer were reviewed as well as patients with diagnoses consistent with the development of sensory strabismus. Parameters considered were age at onset of visi...

Abstract Diffuse choroidal hemangioma is a congenital vascular hamartoma often associated with hemangiomatous lesions of the brain, orbit, and periocular skin (nevus flammeus) in the Sturge-Weber syndrome. Visual loss from diffuse choroidal hemangioma may result from chronic serous retinal detachments causing retinal pigment epithelial, photoreceptor or cystoid degeneration, and glaucomatous optic atrophy. Low-dose external beam irradiation has successfully resolved exudative retinal detachment ...

Purpose: The two most commonly used clinical methods of determining a high AC/A ratio are: 1) the gradient method, and 2) the distance/near disparity method. Significant differences can be found not only between these two methods, but also in the different techniques for the gradient method alone. The purpose of our study is to compare the gradient method using +3.00 lenses for near and-3.00 lenses for distance, and the distance/near disparity method. Methods: Patients examined over a 2-year per...

Purpose: To determine the frequency of accommodative esotropia with onset by 6 months of age; to determine if the presence or absence of characteristics usually associated with infantile esotropia can help in the diagnosis; and to determine if antiaccommodative therapy is adequate treatment for the esotropia. Methods: The charts of 100 patients with infantile esotropia, seen over a 2-year period (September 1995 to September 1997), were reviewed. We identified those with at least 2.25 diopters (D...

Abstract Background: An abnormal head posture may be adopted for ocular or nonocular reasons. The most common ocular reasons are to maintain binocularity and to obtain the best possible visual acuity. Patients with undercorrected or overcorrected refractive errors have been reported to adopt a variety of head positions, thought to be an attempt to obtain the best possible visual acuity. Methods: Five patients with symmetric high hyperopia (at least +5.00 D) and an abnormal head posture are prese...
