Strabismus and oculomotility

Show Summary Details


The chapter begins by discussing the anatomy and actions of the extraocular muscles and central control of ocular motility, before covering the key clinical skills, namely patient assessment, assessment of ocular movements, visual acuity testing, tests of stereopsis and binocular single vision, tests of retinal correspondence and suppression, and Hess charts. It then covers the key areas of clinical knowledge, including amblyopia, binocular vision and stereopsis, concomitant strabismus, incomitant strabismus, restrictive ocular motility disorders, complex ocular motility syndromes, vertical deviations , and alphabet patterns, and the key practical skills, namely the principles of strabismus surgery and other procedures in strabismus. The chapter concludes with five case-based discussions, on myopic anisometropia, esotropia, infantile esotropia, orbital floor fracture, and consecutive exotropia.
