Amblyopia treatment

This study was conducted to assess practice preferences in the management of amblyopia among paediatric ophthalmologists. A close-ended multiple choice questionnaire consisting of 10 questions was circulated to 113 paediatric ophthalmologists and fellows of which 74 completed the questionnaire. Seventy-six...

Occlusion amblyopia

The authors report a case of binocular diplopia developing in an eight-year-old autistic child following two hours of total occlusion per day for six weeks. The child did not automatically resuppress once occlusion was stopped. Occlusion with Blenderm tape prevented...

Screening for amblyopia

The purpose was to determine the validity of the OPTEC 5500 vision screener in detecting visual acuity and amblyopia in paediatric patients aged 3-17 years with comparison to the Lea and Snellen tests. This was a cross-section study of 64...

Choroidal thickness in strabismus and amblyopia

The authors examined the effect of exotropia, esotropia, anisometropic amblyopia and hypermetropia on choroidal thickness in a prospective cross section study. The study included 100 patients and 20 controls with a mean age of 8.5±2.9 years; 61 female and 59...

Microperimetry measurements in anisometropic amblyopia

The authors aimed to evaluate retinal sensitivity and fixation characteristics in children with anisometropic amblyopia by macular analyser integrity assessment (MAIA) microperimetry and to compare the results between amblyopia and fellow eyes. The study included 39 children; 21 female –...

Amblyopia prevalence in Bulgaria

The purpose of this study was to establish the prevalence of amblyopia in children aged 4 to 10 years in Bulgaria. This cross-section epidemiology study had proportional stratified sample methods across five cities in Western Bulgaria. Of 1675 children, 42...

Amblyopia OCT results

The authors compared the macular and peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thicknesses of amblyopic and fellow eyes using Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) to reveal any differences. They sought to determine the anatomical differences between these subtypes of strabismic...

Amblyopia treatment review

This review paper summarises the main causes and neural mechanisms that characterise amblyopia. The authors analysed neuroanatomical, neurophysiological and electrophysiological studies in the literature to better understand actual treatment regimens and evaluate new therapeutic possibilities. They considered causes of strabismus,...

Iran prevalence of amblyopia

The authors aimed to determine the prevalence of amblyopia, its relation with refractive errors and its determinants. The target population was all children aged seven years in Iran. There were 3675 of 4157 children who participated (88.4%) with final analysis...

Binocular training for amblyopia

The clinical effectiveness of binocular investigation for amblyopia was measured. The authors had previously unsuccessfully treated patients using occlusion and / or surgery. Patients were followed for an average of six months after cessation of treatment. The study included 22...

MRI in anisometropic amblyopia

This study recruited patients with anisometropic amblyopia in the right eye and without strabismus. This allowed the authors to reduce the effort exerted in cortex activities by different amblyopic eyes. They used whole brain analysis to find the differences between...

Binocular viewing amblyopia therapy

The authors compared conventional occlusion therapy for amblyopia with binocular viewing amblyopia therapy (MFBF) for effects on binocular vision and visual acuity. During MFBF the amblyopic eye perceives the target while the fellow eye perceives the background. Both eyes see...
