The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and rate of newly detected manifest strabismus cases in the paediatric population of the Republic of Moldova over 2011-2017. Average coverage of paediatric prophylactic examinations was 60.1% annually – paediatric ophthalmology vision screening examinations are free. Prevalence percentage rate of strabismus per year was 1.26 to 1.3 and was stable across the years. Rate of new diagnosis was 21-22.2 total strabismus cases per year. Esotropia was twice as much as exotropia (rate of 15.9-16.7 versus 4.2-4.9). Incomitant strabismus had a rate of 0.6 to 0.9. The age most commonly associated with detection of new cases was the three to six-year-old group. The authors conclude their prevalence rates for strabismus are lower than in other European countries.
