Previous studies have demonstrated that vergence adaptation resulting from the prolonged decay of slow fusional vergence may prevent the accurate assessment of oculomotor deviations. Continuing changes in heterophoria have been reported after 27 days of monocular occlusion. However, since most slow fusional vergence will decay within the first few minutes of dissociation, a clinical assessment of both vergence adaptation and heterophoria could be made more rapidly. This report documents two… CONTINUE READING
