    Strabismus A camera lens focuses patterns of light onto film which records the image exactly. If the lens is out of focus or partially covered, a b lurry or obscured picture will result. The film is a recording device, it does not interpret and select what it portrays. Images from a camera are objective in a very literal sense. Seeing, however, is not such a seamless process. Our eyes work similarly to a camera in that they have a lens which focuses a real image on our retina, a light sensitive

    ophthalmologist’s educational background wouldn’t pay much attention to. For me, the word amblyopia makes every single experience in my life vastly different.

    (Rose, 1998). Because the eye is not fully developed at birth (Jarvis, 1992, as cited in Rose, 1998), infants need stimulation to complete the visual neural pathway. When one or both eyes are inhibited, for example due to misalignment of one eye (strabismus) or a large difference in refractive power between two eyes (anisometropia), the neural pathway for the inhibited eye develops abnormally, or does not develop at all. At

    PREVALENCE OF NON STRABISMIC VERGENCE DYSFUNCTIONS IN AN ORTHOPTIC CLNIC INTRODUCTION In the preceding generations, fine distance visual acuity and stereoscopic vision were of paramount importance, since the survival depended absolutely on the capability to farm, hunt and fish. But today, the emphasis has shifted virtually from distance visual functions to two dimensional near visual tasks such as desk work, reading, computer usage etc.The presence of non strabismic binocular dysfunctions such

    During my sophomore year of highschool, I started to get migraines every single day. All the women on my mom’s side of my family get them, so I just assumed it was hereditary and would go away.

Last year, I had strabismus surgery to correct my “wandering eye”. Today, I will discuss strabismus, what causes it, and how it can be treated. Strabismus occurs when both eyes do not look at the same

    Partial accommodative esotropia is a common type of strabismus which is frequently seen in ophthalmic clinic. The definitive treatment is surgery after full refractive and amblyopic therapy. There are multiple studies that has been conducted to demonstrate the result of one muscle surgery on other types of strabismus. One muscle surgery has the advantage of less operative time, less anaesthetic and surgical complications, and leave the other horizontal muscle reserve for a second step if it is required

    best-corrected visual acuity that cannot be attributed directly to the effect of any structural abnormality of the eye or the posterior visual pathways. Amblyopia is caused by abnormal visual experience early in life resulting from one of the following: strabismus anisometropia or high bilateral refractive errors (isometropia), stimulus deprivation Amblyopia is responsible for more unilaterally reduced vision of childhood onset than all other causes combined, with a prevalence of 2%- 4% in the North American
