PURPOSE This study was designed to localize chromosomal susceptibility loci for comitant strabismus among Japanese families by genome-wide linkage analyses. METHODS Fifty-five Japanese families, with at least two members with comitant strabismus (esotropia and/or exotropia), were subject to full ophthalmic examination, careful ocular history, and review(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the adaptive vertical vergence aftereffect and determine whether it contributes to a difference of vertical deviation with respect to gaze distance in patients with vertical strabismus. DESIGN Prospective noncomparative studies. METHODS Eighty-four patients with unilateral superior oblique palsies were enrolled and classified into(More)
Although a 0.3 Bangerter filter, which reduces visual acuity, is frequently used for treating moderate amblyopia, the effects on gross stereopsis are not well known. This study quantitatively evaluated whether gross stereopsis is degraded by a Bangerter filter. Seven healthy subjects (median age: 29 years) participated in this psychophysical study. Targets(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to assess how hyperdeviation of a paretic eye during ipsilesional head tilt-the Bielschowsky head tilt phenomenon (BHP)-can be explained by decreased compensatory ocular counterrolling (OCR) due to the depressed torque of the paretic superior oblique (SO) muscle. METHODS Thirty-three patients with clinically diagnosed SO(More)
