Reduction of deviation angle during occlusion therapy: in partially accommodative esotropia with moderate amblyopia.

Chun BY, Kwon SJ, Chae SH, Kwon JY - Korean J Ophthalmol (2007)

Bottom Line: To evaluate changes in ocular alignment in partially accommodative esotropic children age ranged from 3 to 8 years during occlusion therapy for amblyopia.There was a statistical relationship between increase of visual acuity ratio and decrease of deviation angle (r=-0.479, p=0.024).There was a significant reduction of deviation angle of partially accommodative esotropic patients at 2 years after occlusion therapy.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: To evaluate changes in ocular alignment in partially accommodative esotropic children age ranged from 3 to 8 years during occlusion therapy for amblyopia.

Methods: Angle measurements of twenty-two partially accommodative esotropic patients with moderate amblyopia were evaluated before and at 2 years after occlusion therapy.

Results: Mean deviation angle with glasses at the start of occlusion treatment was 19.45+/-5.97 PD and decreased to 12.14+/-12.96 PD at 2 years after occlusion therapy (p<0.01). After occlusion therapy, 9 (41%) cases were indications of surgery for residual deviation but if we had planned surgery before occlusion treatment, 18 (82%) of patients would have had surgery. There was a statistical relationship between increase of visual acuity ratio and decrease of deviation angle (r=-0.479, p=0.024).

Conclusions: There was a significant reduction of deviation angle of partially accommodative esotropic patients at 2 years after occlusion therapy. Our results suggest that occlusion therapy has an influence on ocular alignment in partially accommodative esotropic patients with amblyopia.
