PURPOSE: To generate a statistical model for personalizing a patient's occlusion therapy regimen. METHODS: Statistical modelling was undertaken on a combined data set of the Monitored Occlusion Treatment of Amblyopia Study (MOTAS) and the Randomized Occlusion Treatment of Amblyopia Study (ROTAS). This exercise permits the calculation of future patients' total effective dose (TED)-that predicted to achieve their best attainable visual acuity. Daily patching regimens (hours/day) can be calculated from the TED...

PURPOSE: Extensive literature exists on normative stereoacuity values for younger children, but there is less information about normative stereoacuity in older children/adults. Individual stereotests cannot be used interchangeably-knowing the upper limit of normality for each test is important. This report details normative stereoacuity values for 5 near/distance stereotests drawn from a large sample of participants aged 16-40 years, across 3 studies. METHODS: Participants (n=206, mean age 22...

Restrictive strabismus resulting from the presence of an accessory extraocular muscle has rarely been reported in the literature. Most articles written on this topic are isolated case reports. The purpose of this paper is to describe a series of 7 similar patients presenting with atypical restrictive strabismus associated with enophthalmos in the affected eye, which was found to be caused by an accessory extraocular muscle attached to the posterior globe near the optic nerve. The medical records of 7 patients who shared these clinical characteristics were retrospectively analyzed...

Gregory Tsoucalas, Markos Sgantzos
The eminent Greek physician Paul of Aegina, native of the Saronic island Aegina and pupil of the Alexandrian School, understood both exotropia and endotropia, his designation for esotropia and proposed therapeutic measures for their treatment during baby or toddler age. He had introduced an innovative method for the newborns to have a straight vision, "the congenital strabismus of the newborns must be treated with the placement of a facial mask (with 2 open holes in the middle axes of the eyes), so that the babies could only see in a straight line", combined with a small oil lamp to assure a direct eye alignment...

INTRODUCTION: Undercorrections have been reported after a number of surgical procedures for Brown's syndrome. The reason for late undercorrections is not clear but may be related to the heterogeneous etiology of Brown's syndrome. PURPOSE: We report a patient with late undercorrection after superior oblique tendon recession for Brown's syndrome that was partially relieved by a silicone spacer placed nasally. RESULTS: We noted on surgical exploration that the superior oblique tendon had attached to the sclera under the nasal border of the superior rectus...

David Newsham, Anna R O'Connor
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Occlusion used to treat amblyopia towards the end of the developmental component of the critical period gives a risk of inducing intractable diplopia. In the United Kingdom, the density of suppression is assessed via the Sbisa/Bagolini filter bar, but there is very little research evidence to guide clinical practice or interpretation of the tests used. The aims of this study were to determine current practice and estimate the incidence of intractable diplopia following amblyopia treatment...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the incidence of the oculocardiac reflex (OCR) and its associated risk factors during strabismus surgery at a tertiary referral center. METHODS: Over a 2-year period, all strabismus surgery candidates were enrolled in the study. OCR was defined as heart rate reduction ≥15% after traction on extraocular muscle(s). The rate of OCR was determined and possible associations were explored. Variables included age, gender, type of strabismus, nature of surgery (weakening versus strengthening), specified extraocular muscle, times of surgery, and the sequence of operated muscles (eg, first, second, or third operated muscle)...
