These binocular and monocular sensory adaptations to cyclotropia that occur in patients with congenital or early acquired cyclodeviation [1] prevent awareness of tilting of the environment under monocular and binocular conditions.
Basing on the clinical observation of sudden improvement of visual acuity and stereopsis in children operated on for congenital SO palsy, as if this kind of amblyopia was only apparent or quickly reversible and soluble by the surgical correction of cyclotropia, we studied in deep a series of patients who had undergone inferior oblique recession for congenital SO palsy at the Ophthalmology Department of the S.
Whether cyclofusion occurs only on a sensory basis or has also a motor component, and which weight has the one and the other in compensating for cyclotropia, is still a debated question.
