anisometropic amblyopia

an·i·so·me·tro·pic am·bly·o·pi·a

a suppression of central vision resulting from an unequal refractive error (anisometropia) of at least 2 diopters. This induces a sufficient difference in image size (aniseikonia) that the two images cannot be fused. To avoid confusion, the blurrier image is suppressed.

He discusses the etiology of myopia; the treatment, based on targeting the excessive tension of the oblique muscles, including its use in treating astigmatism, anisometropia, anisometropic amblyopia, the loss of depth perception, and progressive myopia; and the reliability of the methodology, including follow-up, troubleshooting, and case examples.
The study revealed that people with both normal vision as well as anisometropic amblyopia, showing different images between the two eyes did not matter suggesting that both groups were able to overcome the distracting interference and track the dots successfully.
Interestingly, children with non-strabismic anisometropic amblyopia have been shown to improve with treatment regardless of their age, indicating that the conventional sensitive period of seven to eight years may not apply and these children should be managed comprehensively with full refractive correction and patching at any age.
Anisometropic 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.
Long-term efficacy of excimer laser in situ keratomileusis in the management of children with high anisometropic amblyopia. Chin Med J 2009;122:813-7.
Asymmetric refractive errors between the eyes (i.e., anisometropia) during the critical period of visual maturation (i.e., at ages less than 8 years old) is a widely known cause of anisometropic amblyopia [3].
(2) is shorter for stimulus deprivation amblyopia than for strabismic amblyopia or anisometropic amblyopia. Around the age of two to four weeks, a period of dramatic developmental plasticity.
Type of amblyopia was independent of gender, and anisometropic amblyopia was the most common type of amblyopia found in both genders.
Nevertheless, previous studies have mentioned a lack of sensitivity in the changes in the amplitude in patients with esotropia and suggested that the amplitude is affected only in patients with anisometropic amblyopia. (20) Other researchers have suggested that the amplitude of the pattern reversal VEP can be decreased only with a small pattern stimulation.
A 10-year-old white girl with right-sided SWS was diagnosed with right anisometropic amblyopia at age of 6 years and responded to glasses with a stabilized visual acuity of 20/100 in the right eye.
