Strabismus measurements were made using the Krimsky test or prism cover test.
Strabismus was measured using the cover-uncover test, prism and alternate cover test, and/or Krimsky test. It was defined as a manifested or latent ocular deviation at a distance or near fixation with or without spectacle correction, which included an esodeviation of [greater than or equal to]10 prism diopters (PD), an exodeviation of [greater than or equal to]15 PD, or any vertical deviations.
The angle of preoperative and postoperative deviations were assessed by Hirschberg test, Krimsky test or alternate prism cover test (in prism diopters [PD]) when possible.
