Pattern visual-evoked response binocular summation (VERBS) was recorded in normal infants, between the ages of 1-58 months, and in similar-aged esotropic infants before and at various times after corrective surgery. The normal subjects had no significant VERBS at 1.5 months of age, developed a rapid acceleration of VERBS between 1.5-3 months, and then(More)
When acuity was used to evaluate amblyopia in children, the amblyopic eye had decreased acuity and the nonamblyopic eye had normal acuity. However when Contrast Sensitivity Functions (CSFs) were used to evaluate amblyopia, losses in the CSF were discovered in both the amblyopic and the nonamblyopic eyes. During the course of occlusion therapy, the amblyopic(More)
Discordant twins may be at increased risk for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) because of factors related to their unequal growth. Discordancy is defined as a difference of 15% or more in the birth weights of the two infants. We examined the data in 26 sets of discordant twins from six NICUs, including birthweight, gestational age, sex, and highest grade of(More)
OBJECTIVES To present the 3- and 12-month strabismus data from 3030 premature infants with birth weights less than 1251 g enrolled in the Multicenter Trial of Cryotherapy for Retinopathy of Prematurity. DESIGN Data from the 3- and 12-month examinations conducted at 23 regional study centers were tabulated for all infants. The main outcome measure, ocular(More)
In a prospective study of 505 hearing impaired and deaf students conducted at Children's Hospital Eye Clinic, 48.7% were found to have significant ocular abnormalities. The prevalence of myopia, astigmatism, and pathological intraocular changes was found to be significantly increased over the general population. In addition, the prevalence of ocular(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and tolerance of two low doses of levodopa/carbidopa (25/6.25 mg, 50/12.5 mg) and placebo (Tums) in 20 children with amblyopia between the ages of 4 and 14 years. METHODS A double-masked placebo-controlled randomized 8-hour study was performed during which subjects received one of two doses of levodopa/carbidopa or(More)
Three patients with fourth cranial nerve palsy underwent a recession of the ipsilateral inferior oblique muscle. In all three cases, the inferior oblique muscle was anteriorly displaced to the temporal border of the inferior rectus muscle. In the immediate postoperative period, all three patients developed a hypotropia and diplopia in the primary position(More)
PURPOSE This article represents the first report in the ophthalmology literature of an association between pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) and recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH). DESIGN Noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Three children receiving rhGH for short stature with Turner syndrome, Jeune syndrome, or Down syndrome. METHODS Children(More)
To determine the tolerability and efficacy of levodopa/carbidopa combined with occlusion therapy for childhood amblyopia, a double-masked placebo-controlled randomized longitudinal study was performed on 10 amblyopic children between 6 and 14 years of age. Subjects received, on average, 20/5 mg levodopa/carbidopa or 20 mg of placebo three times per day(More)
