In human strabismic amblyopes, visual acuity is selectively impaired in the central part of the visual field of the deviated eye. The acuity loss is usually asymmetric and depends on the direction and magnitude of the interocular misalignment. By contrast, in anisometropic amblyopes, the loss of acuity extends symmetrically in both the nasal and the temporal fields of the defocussed eye. Binocular interaction, including stereopsis, is selectively lost in the central part of the visual field of… CONTINUE READING
