In a study comparing E-ETDRS optotypes with the HOTV optotype, investigators found that children had better test results for HOTV optotypes compared with E-ETDRS optotypes (median difference = 0.06 logMAR or 3 letters on an optotype with 5 letters per line, p = 0.0001) when including children with normal eyes, eyes with refractive error, or amblyopic
Statistical comparison of the microtropic amblyopic
eyes versus non-microtropic eyes showed significant differences at spatial frequencies of 3, 12 and 18 cpd (3 cpd, t=2.8, p=0.007; 6 cpd, t=1.1 p=0.261; 12 cpd, t=2.2, p=0.033; 18 cpd, t=2.2, p=0.030).

eye in anisometropic children," Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, vol.
In our study, we found out that 18% of the patients were amblyopic
. Studies have shown an incidence of amblyopia (9, 17) between ranges of 20% to 35 % of all patients.
The patients were encouraged to use the amblyopic
eye by performing routine ocular tasks which were dependent on the patient's profession.
In congenital cases this interference may be sufficient to cause amblyopia; therefore, ptosis, needs to be treated not only to improve cosmesis and vision but also to safeguard against the affected eye becoming amblyopic
In another original article in this issue, Comez et al., compared retinal and optic disc features measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the amblyopic
and non-amblyopic eyes of patients with myopic and hypermetropic anisometropia.
Maya Vetencourt and colleagues previously reported that chronic administration of fluoxetine, at a dosage that produced serum fluoxetine levels within the therapeutic range in humans, reinstated ocular dominance plasticity in adulthood and promoted visual recovery in amblyopic
This definition is based solely on visual acuity; however, this definition does not take into account the qualitative differences in vision that an amblyopic
often experiences resulting in poorer vision than that measured by Snellen's chart.
The mean age was 9.5 years among the 345 nonamblyopic children and 9.4 years in the 7 amblyopic
cases, with no statistically significant difference.
eyes, the latency of the P100 is slightly prolonged and of lower amplitude as a result of reduced contrast sensitivity (see Figure 4).
Objectives: To compare retinal and optic disc characteristics between amblyopic
and non-amblyopic eyes in patients with myopic and hyperopic anisometropia measured with optical coherence tomography (OCT).
treatment was instituted for necessary cases.
The patients with a history of psoriatic arthritis (PsA), reactive arthritis (ReA), arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease (AIBD), other systemic diseases, intermediate uveitis, posterior uveitis, intraocular surgery, macular disease (e.g., epiretinal fibrosis and diabetic maculopathy), and amblyopic
eyes were excluded from the study.
(1) If vision is reduced in one eye after 18 weeks, then occlusion therapy should commence by patching the better eye to stimulate use of the amblyopic
