Disease relevance of Orthoptics

  • METHODS: Seventy-seven subjects between 2 and 18 years of age received gold-standard orthoptic examinations and were classified as at risk for amblyopia if strabismus or anisometropia (>1.50 diopters) was present [1].
  • The objective of this study was to assess the etiology of lateral rectus palsies in patients undergoing lumbar myelograms with Iopamidol (Isovue; ER Squibb and Sons, Princeton, NJ, USA; Niopam, E Merc, UK.). An audit of the departmental orthoptic record revealed two patients who had suffered abducens palsies after myelograms [2].
