1. Thicknesses of the fovea and retinal nerve fiber layer in amblyopic and normal eyes in children.
Match Strength: 7.957
PURPOSE: This study was designed to assess and compare the thicknesses of the fovea and the retinal nerve fiber layer in normal children and children with amblyopia. METHODS: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) was performed on 26 children (52 eyes total) with unilateral amblyopia that was due to anisometropia or strabismus. OCT was also performed on 42 normal children (84 eyes), for a total of 136 eyes. Retinal thickness measurements were taken from the fovea, and the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measurements were taken from the superior, inferior, nasal and temporal quadrants in the ...

2. The VF-14 and psychological impact of amblyopia and strabismus.
Match Strength: 7.669
PURPOSE: To assess the impact of amblyopia, strabismus and glasses on subjective visual and psychological function among amblyopes. METHODS: Questionnaires were administered to 120 teenagers with amblyopia (cases), with residual amblyopia after treatment, or with or without strabismus and 120 control subjects (controls) Cases underwent ophthalmic examination including cycloplegic refraction. Two questionnaires (visual function 14 [VF-14] and a newly designed eight-item questionnaire) were administered to assess the psychological impact score of general daily life, having a weaker eye, glasses ...

3. The global processing deficit in amblyopia involves noise segregation.
Match Strength: 6.634
Some studies have reported deficits in amblyopia for global form and motion integration, whereas other studies have shown global integration of form and motion information to be normal in amblyopia. Here, we attempt to resolve this discrepancy by showing that amblyopes only exhibit selective performance deficits on global tasks that contain noise as well as signal. We hypothesized that signal integration is normal, but noise segregation is not. We used comparable global orientation and motion direction discrimination tasks to measure integration performance in the presence of controlled ... Read More »

4. Part-time occlusion therapy for anisometropic amblyopia detected in children eight years of age and older.
Match Strength: 5.938
PURPOSE: To determine the outcome of part-time occlusion therapy in children with anisometropic amblyopia detected after they were 8 years of age. METHODS: We analyzed 29 eyes with anisometropic amblyopia in children 8 years of age and older. The mean age was 8.79 +/- 0.98 (range 8-12) years old. The subjects whose best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) did not improve by two lines or better within 2 weeks of wearing glasses full-time were prescribed occlusion therapy for 6 hours a day outside of school hours, along with the instruction to wear glasses full-time. Subjects who complied with ... Read More »

5. Predictors and a remedy for noncompliance with amblyopia therapy in children measured with the occlusion dose monitor.
Match Strength: 4.220
PURPOSE: Noncompliance is one of the limiting factors in the success of occlusion therapy for amblyopia. Electronic monitoring was used to investigate predictors of noncompliance, and, in a prospective randomized clinical trial, determined the effectiveness of an educational program. METHODS: Compliance was measured electronically during 1 week every 3 months in 310 newly diagnosed amblyopic children. The family's demographic parameters and the child's clinical parameters were assessed for their influence on the level of compliance. In addition to standard orthoptic care, children were ...

6. Prevalence of horizontal deviation pattern changes with measurements in extreme gazes.
Match Strength: 3.098
PurposeTo analyse the difference between measurement of A and V pattern strabismus at 25 degrees and extreme gaze position in esotropia (ET) and exotropia (XT).MethodsThis prospective cross-section study included 27 patients with basic horizontal strabismus associated to any deviation pattern. Mean age was 11.88+/-9.17 (6-44) years. Exclusion criteria were amblyopia, intermittent XT, noncollaboration with the exam, previous strabismus surgery, craniofacial, or spinal abnormalities. The deviations were measured with prism cover test at 6 m. Measurements were carried out in primary position, ... Read More »

7. Clinical study for the undercorrection factor in intermittent exotropia.
Match Strength: 2.975
PURPOSE: The surgical technique for intermittent exotropia [X(T)] is quite simple. However, in many cases, the condition recurs due to any one of a number of causes, including undercorrection. This study examined the factors associated with undercorrection on X(T) patients. METHODS: The study examined 199 X(T) patients who underwent bilateral recession of the lateral rectus muscle or unilateral recession of the lateral rectus muscle and resection of the medial rectus muscle, and who were followed-up for more than a year. Patients whose near and far distance angles of deviation were 9 prism ... Read More »
