The random dot stereogram E (RDE) has been shown to be a simple and effective test for the detection of binocular abnormalities and defective visual acuity in children. We determined the validity of the RDE as a screening test for reduced visual acuity, amblyopia and strabismus in two separate populations of children. A nonselective group of 100 school(More)
This paper addresses the problem: how should a postgraduate research student in marketing or a similar field (and his or her supervisor) present the thesis?

Photorefraction (PR) is gaining acceptance as potentially the most effective objective screening technique for amblyopia risk factors in the preverbal child. This study determined the validity and feasibility of using the Auckland eccentric photorefractor in the detection of amblyopiogenic factors in six to nine month old infants in an established(More)
Photoscreening to detect amblyopiogenic conditions is particularly applicable for the child under three years of age because conventional testing is difficult. We have designed an eccentric photoscreener that is inexpensive, easily used and requires only one diagnostic photograph. Some 231 infants and children were refracted and photoscreened and results(More)
