The inclusion criterion was anisometropia as the only cause of decreased vision in the amblyopic eye.

You would not believe the number of prescription orders we receive daily showing over three prism dioptres of anisometropia with no indication that it should be corrected.
Treatment of anisometropia amblyopia in children with refractive correction.
We also reported a much higher anisometropia incidence than him [13] (61.7% of RE versus 3%) as he included only eyes with >4.0 diopter interocular difference, while we included cases with >1.0 diopter interocular difference which is more appropriate for scientific and statistical purposes.
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).
Hypermetropia was defined as > +2.0 D spherical equivalent in either eye, myopia as > -1.50 D spherical equivalent in either eye and anisometropia as a difference > 1.0 D spherical equivalent between the eyes.
Anisometropia and convergence insufficiency were particular areas of interest, leading to his development of the Bush bicentric lens, line free slab off prism designs, and special base-in prism-controlled bifocals.
The inclusion criteria for this study were as follows: aged 18 to 25, with spherical equivalent refraction (SER) with spectacle prescription between -1.00 and -5.00 D (mean [+ or -] SD, -2.63 [+ or -] 1.28 D), and with little astigmatism ([less than or equal to] 1.00 D) or anisometropia ([less than or equal to]1.00 D).
However, due to possible refractive errors, anisometropia, strabismus, late-stage retinal tears and detachment as well as cortical causes, functional success rates may not be as high as anatomic success rates.
Children, in particular, a ratio that differs from 3 can be indicative of disruption in the emmetropization process and therefore assessment for amblyopia and anisometropia become important.
On the other hand, the evolution of the disease tends to be asymmetric, and even in the presence of regular astigmatism, the correction with glasses may result in aniseikonia due to the induced refractive anisometropia. In this situation, CL fitting, in its different forms, seems to be the best option.
We did not consider lensectomy as a first choice therapy in our patient because of her age, risk of zonular defects, small capsular bag for standard IOL and postoperative visual problems such as accommodation and anisometropia. However, her IOP levels remained elevated despite patent peripheral iridotomy and maximum tolerated medical therapy, so we performed clear lens extraction.
