Campos (1982a) reported on his psychophysical studies on the binocularity of patients with comitant strabismus. With binocular visual field techniques, it was possible to show that patients with small-angle eso- and exotropia exhibit a binocular vision, without suppression of the deviated eye. In the present paper visual electrophysiology is used(More)
Unilateral coronal suture stenosis provokes a shortening of the orbital roof of one side. It is argued that the effectiveness of the superior oblique muscle is reduced because of reduced length of its unreflected part and because of the increased angle between the reflected part of the tendon and ocular axis. This condition causes a clinical picture of(More)
Patients with herpes zoster of the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve and normal ocular motility were examined. They were asked to point to targets without the sight of their own hand. Significant errors were found on the affected side. Proprioceptive information of the extraocular muscles is assumed to travel in the trigeminal nerve, and these(More)
Ten normal subjects and 14 patients with comitant esotropia were examined by means of pattern visual evoked responses (VER) under monocular and binocular viewing conditions. When both eyes were stimulated together a VER summation was noted both in normals and in strabismics with small-angle deviation and anomalous retinal correspondence (ARC). This is(More)
PURPOSE To report a unique case of cataract in a young patient with lathosterolosis, a singular defect of cholesterol biosynthesis, and to report the clinical results and histopathologic findings after cataract surgery. METHODS A 7-year-old patient with lathosterolosis, a rare defect of cholesterol biosynthesis, presented with a complex phenotype,(More)
The extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) has been associated to antioxidant effects. The mycotoxin alternariol (AOH) can contaminate olives. The aims of this work were to determine the cytotoxic effects and reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by AOH, tyrosol and oleuropein (two polyphenols of olive oil) and a real EVOO extract in Caco-2 cells. The MTT assay and(More)
The most widely-used techniques for testing visual function in babies are reviewed. Advantages and limitations of optokinetic nystagmus testing, visual evoked responses and preferential looking techniques are considered. The theoretical basis and the clinical applicability of those techniques are outlined. Other simple methods are considered as well, which(More)
PURPOSE To assess possible refractive changes according to age and strabismus in a statistically significant cohort. METHODS A population-based sample of 12,534 subjects 0.5 to 20 years old, examined between 2004 and 2006, was tested. Each subject received a complete orthoptic examination, including spherocylindrical streak retinoscopy in cycloplegia.(More)
PURPOSE Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction is a common condition, and its diagnosis must be based more on regular in-time epiphora than mattering. The purpose of this study is to better define the diagnostic criteria and therapeutic strategy. METHODS We have retrospectively evaluated 1563 subjects treated from 1990-1997 at the Pediatric(More)
