Results of surgery in a case of FMNS

The authors present the effects of the tenotomy and reattachment procedure on a patient with accommodative strabismus and fusion maldevelopment nystagmus syndrome (FMNS) who did not require strabismus correction. The ocular motility study of this patient allowed the opportunity to...

However, the underlying choroid characteristics remain under researched. This retrospective study utilised data from an ophthalmic oncology...

IXT control vs. binocular summation

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship of BS scores with other current markers used for evaluating the control in preoperative intermittent exotropia (IXT) patients. Data was collected on stereoacuity, angle of deviation, Newcastle control score (NCS),...

Childhood visual development in albinism and infantile nystagmus

The authors compare monocular and binocular development measures in 16 children with albinism, 10 with infantile nystagmus (INS) and 72 with normal vision to address interocular acuity differences, crowding ratios and binocular summation rates. The children were aged between four...
