1. Part-time occlusion therapy for anisometropic amblyopia detected in children eight years of age and older.
Match Strength: 12.907
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 »

2. Thicknesses of the fovea and retinal nerve fiber layer in amblyopic and normal eyes in children.
Match Strength: 11.127
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 ...
