The arrangement of the ocular dominance columns in the human primary visual cortex was studied by examining cytochrome oxidase activity in autopsy specimens of occipital lobes obtained from two patients who became blind in one eye before death. By artificially flattening the cortex before processing, it was possible to reconstruct the pattern formed by the(More)
PURPOSE Unilateral coronal synostosis alters orbital development and can be associated with strabismus, oblique muscle dysfunction, astigmatism, and amblyopia. While the ocular effects are most dramatic on the side of the fusion, the shape of the contralateral orbit is also abnormal and the effect of these changes on bilateral visual development has not(More)
IMPORTANCE Third nerve palsy causes disfiguring, incomitant strabismus with limited options for correction. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the oculomotor outcomes, anatomical changes, and complications associated with adjustable nasal transposition of the split lateral rectus (LR) muscle, a novel technique for managing strabismus associated with third nerve palsy.(More)
PURPOSE INTRODUCTION TO THE OPHTHALMIC LITERATURE OF AN UNUSUAL CAUSE OF PAPILLEDEMA AND SUBSEQUENT OPTIC ATROPHY: X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets (XLH). METHODS Case report of a 3-year-old female presenting with papilledema resulting from craniosynostosis secondary to XLH. RESULTS Early intervention with craniofacial surgery prevented the development(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether age at initiation of treatment for amblyopia influences the response among children 3 to less than 13 years of age with unilateral amblyopia who have 20/40 to 20/400 amblyopic eye visual acuity. METHODS A meta-analysis of individual subject data from 4 recently completed randomized amblyopia treatment trials was performed to(More)
BACKGROUND Unilateral coronal synostosis results in ipsilateral retrusion of the forehead and superior orbital rim, shortening the elevation of the orbital roof and contralateral frontal bossing and orbital roof depression. This craniosynostosis is associated with the development of V-pattern strabismus and aniso-astigmatism. Since 2004 endoscopic strip(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe our results using augmented temporal superior rectus transposition (SRT) with adjustable medial rectus muscle recession (MRc) for treatment of Duane syndrome and sixth nerve palsy. METHODS Retrospective surgical case review of patients undergoing SRT. Preoperative and postoperative orthoptic measurements were recorded. Minimum(More)
PURPOSE To report outcomes of esotropia surgery with a goal-determined tool. METHODS A goal-determined outcomes analysis tool was devised to address a quality improvement initiative at Boston Children's Hospital. Surgeons preoperatively ranked four possible goals for intervention: enhancement of binocular potential, restoration of eye contact(More)
PURPOSE Graves' disease is rare in children. The associated orbitopathy has not been well-characterized. In particular, the unique features of prepubertal Graves' orbitopathy are poorly described. In this study, we compare pre- and postpubertal Graves' orbitopathy and contrast our findings with those reported previously. METHODS A retrospective chart(More)
PURPOSE To compare long-term ophthalmic outcomes in infants treated for unilateral coronal synostosis (UCS) by endoscopic strip craniectomy (ESC) and helmet therapy with those treated by fronto-orbital advancement (FOA). METHODS Consecutive patients with UCS, uncomplicated by other suture synostosis, were identified by a retrospective review of medical(More)
