OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to assess (1) the relationship between interocular suppression and visual function in patients with anisometropic amblyopia, (2) whether suppression can be simulated in matched controls using monocular defocus or neutral density filters, (3) the effects of spectacle or rigid gas-permeable contact lens correction on suppression in patients with anisometropic amblyopia, and (4) the relationship between interocular suppression and outcomes of occlusion therapy… CONTINUE READING

Patients exhibited significantly stronger suppression than controls , and stronger suppression was correlated significantly with poorer visual acuity in amblyopic eyes .
Interocular suppression plays a key role in the visual deficits associated with anisometropic amblyopia and can be simulated in controls by inducing a luminance difference between the eyes .
The aims of this study were to assess ( 1 ) the relationship between interocular suppression and visual function in patients with anisometropic amblyopia , ( 2 ) whether suppression can be simulated in matched controls using monocular defocus or neutral density filters , ( 3 ) the effects of spectacle or rigid gas - permeable contact lens correction on suppression in patients with anisometropic amblyopia , and ( 4 ) the relationship between interocular suppression and outcomes of occlusion therapy .
