OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to evaluate the monocular and binocular outcome of three types of "penalization" (blurring of the sound eye) treatment of amblyopia: traditional full-time atropine or optical penalization and a new intermittent atropine regimen involving atropine instillation 1 to 3 days a week. DESIGN The study design was a retrospective study. PARTICIPANTS A total of 163 patients with strabismic amblyopia treated by full-time atropine (n = 38), intermittent atropine… CONTINUE READING
