The authors evaluated ocular deviation and near stereopsis for five years after bilateral cataract surgery in 88 patients. The results showed that patients with preoperative near exophoria angle greater than 12PD progressed more rapidly to intermittent exotropia after surgery with reduced near stereopsis. Ocular changes occurred in the first two postoperative years and thereafter the ocular deviation increased back towards preoperative values. The authors suggest patients with near exophoria greater than 12PD require long-term follow-up.
