Anatomical context of Anisometropia

  • We investigated the nature of residual binocular interactions in the striate cortex (V1) of monkey models for the two most common causes of visual dysfunction in young children, specifically anisometropia and strabismus [16].

Gene context of Anisometropia

  • PURPOSE: To determine the prevalence rates of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and anisometropia in a prevalence survey of adults in Sumatra, Indonesia [17].
  • Surgical response (Delta/mm recession performed) increased with the magnitude of both preoperative deviation (P<0.001) and anisometropia (P<0.001); the effect of deviation on surgical response was reduced by amblyopia (P=0.02) [18].
  • PRK for myopic anisometropia [19].
  • Individually no distinct association was noticed between various CSF-types and different groups of amblyopia, but on average in anisometropia the deficiency at low spatial frequencies was more pronounced than in purely strabismic cases [20].
