Sensory and motor status were evaluated prospectively in a group of 84 infantile esotropes with fixation preference. Treatment consisted of part-time occlusion therapy, spectacles for bilateral hyperopia of 3.0 diopters or more and bimedial rectus recession. Successful occlusion therapy was associated with both a decrease in fixation preference and a "trade-off" in grating acuities of preferred and nonpreferred eyes. Three patients responded to occlusion therapy and spectacles alone; the… CONTINUE READING
