PURPOSE To measure binocular interaction in amblyopes using a rapid and patient-friendly computer-based method, and to test the feasibility of the assessment in the clinic. METHODS Binocular interaction was assessed in subjects with strabismic amblyopia (n = 7), anisometropic amblyopia (n = 6), strabismus without amblyopia (n = 15) and normal vision (n =(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The lateral rectus-superior rectus band is an orbital connective tissue structure that has been implicated in a form of strabismus termed sagging eye syndrome. Our purpose was to define the normal MR imaging and CT appearance of this band in patients without strabismus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Orbital MR imaging and CT examinations in(More)
Idiopathic orbital inflammation or orbital pseudotumor is rare in the pediatric population and may present with ocular findings not normally seen in the adult population. The authors report the case of a 14-year-old boy with idiopathic orbital inflammation who presented with bilateral panuveitis to highlight the features that make this diagnosis more(More)
