For the purpose of this article we will discuss dispensing considerations for anisometropic
patients with good corrected visual acuity in both eyes, whether or not the anisometropia has been longstanding or newly acquired, for example, as the result of unilateral cataract surgery.
LASIK in children with hyperopic anisometropic
Conclusion: This study found no significant association between gender and types of amblyopia and anisometropic
amblyopia was the most common type of amblyopia in the data collected.
While the amplitude recorded in the anisometropic
eyes with large check-size stimuli in both contrast conditions was significantly lower than normal, it was statistically significant only in low-contrast condition (P = 0.028) (Table 2, Figure 3) and it was not significant in high-contrast condition (P = 0.124) (Table 2, Figure 4).
(28) In one study, the prevalence of anisometropic
amblyopia was found to rise rapidly after two years of age.
This can inadvertently introduce a binocular accommodative stimulus or, if the displacement between the two screens is unequal, an anisometropic
(1) Pediatric aphakia can lead to a group of problems, such as anisometropic
amblyopia, posterior capsular opacification, glaucoma, strabismus, and loss of binocular function.
The other one assessed the sensory eye dominance in treated anisometropic
In 2010 Jan, Plech AR et al, (4) (Vissum/Instituto Oftalmologico de Alicante, Universidad de Alicante, Alicante--Spain) investigated the amount, type, and role of corneal higher order aberrations in both isotropic and Anisometropic
amblyopic adult patients.
As a final, quite mind-blowing point, we have recently reported that anisometropic
amblyopic children can have very asymmetrical or even inverse responses.
amblyopia, no eye deviation was noted in the cover test.
amblyopia may occur together with strabismus amblyopia, and it is difficult to determine whether the amblyopia is primary (due to anisometropia), secondary (due to strabismus), or a combination of both.
