Importance Strabismus causes irreversible vision loss if not detected and treated early. It is unclear whether birth weight (BW) and gestational age (GA) are risk factors for strabismus. Objective To estimate the effect of BW and GA on the likelihood of premature infants developing strabismus. Design, Setting, and Participants In this longitudinal cohort analysis, we monitored a group of premature children from birth to determine the proportion that developed strabismus and the timing of the fir...

AbstractPurpose: To investigate the effects of mild-to-severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) on refractive state and the incidence of strabismus.Materials and methods: Infants born ≤32 weeks of gestation were prospectively evaluated. Inclusion criteria were a follow-up of at least 6 months and at least stage 1 ROP. Group 1 included stage 1 ROP cases. Cases with stage 2 or 3 ROP without indication for treatment formed the second group. Group 3 included cases who received treatment for ROP. Logi...

Purpose To present strabismus data for children who participated in the Early Treatment for Retinopathy of Prematurity (ETROP) randomized trial. Methods The prevalence of strabismus, categorized as present or absent, was tabulated for all children with history of high-risk prethreshold retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) who participated in the ETROP randomized trial and were examined at 9 months to 6 years of age. Relationships among strabismus and demographic measures, eye characteristics, and ne...

: Statistics is an integral part of research in ophthalmology. The application of appropriate statistical strategies allows clinicians to realize the full potential in analyzing data from paired ocular measurements, longitudinal design, and genome-wide association study (GWAS). The increasing popularity of longitudinal follow-up in either clinical or epidemiologic study demands advanced statistical methodologies. This article describes robust statistical models that can cope with correlated comp...

Background Little is known about the aetiological factors underlying strabismus. We undertook a large cohort study to investigate perinatal risk factors for strabismus, overall and by subtype. Methods Orthoptists reviewed ophthalmological records for Danish National Birth Cohort (DNBC) children examined for strabismus in hospital ophthalmology departments or by ophthalmologists in private practice. Information on perinatal characteristics was obtained from national registers. We used log-linear ...

Background Strabismus is a common disorder of largely unknown cause reported to occur more frequently in children with neurodevelopmental conditions and in children born prematurely or of low birth weight. Population-based investigation of other potential early-life influences has been limited.

Design Cross-sectional analytical study of a nationally representative sample of children p...

Objective: To estimate the distribution and predictors of some common visual problems (strabismus, amblyopia, hypermetropia) within a population-based cohort of children at the age of 7 years. Methods: Children participating in a birth cohort study were examined by orthoptists who carried out cover/uncover, alternate cover, visual acuity and non-cycloplegic refraction tests. Prospectively collected data on potential risk factors were available from the study. Results: Data were available for 782...

Purpose Low birth weight (BW) is associated with alterations of foveal shape development in childhood-leading to an increased retinal thickness of the fovea. The aim of the present study was to assess whether BW has a long-term effect on foveal retinal thickness (RT) and is still present in adulthood. Methods In the German population-based Gutenberg Health Study (GHS), participants were examined with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. The association between self-reported BW and RT in...

OBJECTIVE Congenital aqueductal stenosis (CAS) is a common etiology of hydrocephalus that occurs in a subset of infants and may be linked to an increased incidence of ophthalmological abnormalities and delayed developmental milestones. Although hydrocephalus is common and widely studied, sparse literature exists on patients with isolated (no identifiable genetic link) CAS along with analysis of ophthalmological manifestations. In this study, the authors sought to describe the ophthalmological ab...

BACKGROUND To evaluate the distribution pattern and changes of strabismus surgery in northern China. METHODS The records of strabismus patients at Qingdao Eye Hospital from January 2014 to December 2019 were reviewed retrospectively. The characteristics analyzed included gender, regional distribution, constituent ratio of age and type of strabismus. Changes during the periods 2014-2016 and 2017-2019 were compared and analyzed. RESULTS A total of 5746 strabismus patients were recruited. The numbe...

Abstract Purpose To assess the extent to which strabismus in children was associated with motor difficulties and to examine which parameters of strabismus were most closely associated with motor development. Methods The motor skills of children who were suffering from strabismus, were tested binocularly using the Movement Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition (MABC-2) and compared with the motor performance of monocularly tested healthy controls without any ophthalmologic disease.
