The objectives of this study were to compare ocular deviation between the seated and decubitus positions in the operating room and assess the outcomes at one day, one month and three months postoperatively. This prospective study included 30 cases; two...

Binocular summation responses in strabismic amblyopia

A preliminary study was conducted to determine whether binocular summation (BS) in strabismic amblyopia is more decreased than in strabismus alone and whether strabismus surgery improves BS. The study included 15 strabismic amblyopes, 30 normal controls and 30 strabismic controls....
