PURPOSE This study was undertaken to determine whether grating acuity in early childhood can be used as a predictor of letter recognition acuity in patients with albinism. METHODS In this retrospective study, we compared the binocular grating acuities of children with albinism (30 at age 1, 29 at age 2, and 19 at age 3) to their letter recognition acuity at age 4-6 years. RESULTS Mean binocular grating acuity was 2.0, 1.9, and 1.5 octaves below age matched norms at ages 1, 2, and 3 years… CONTINUE READING
