Stability and effects of muscle transplantation for very large angle esotropia: A study of 22 patients.
 

Author(s): Jitendra Nenumal Jethani, Nirzari Shah, Sonal Amin, Monika Jethani

Journal: Indian J Ophthalmol. 2017 Jul;65(7):607-609.

 

A very large angle esotropia is characterized by an angle more than 80 prism diopters (pd). A single eye surgery would not correct such a large angle. Supramaximal recessions and resection would lead to restriction of ocular motility. We present a series of 22 patients with large ...

Does dominance of crossing retinal ganglion cells make the eyes cross? The temporal retina in the origin of infantile esotropia – a neuroanatomical and evolutionary analysis.
 

Author(s): Marcel P M ten Tusscher

Journal: Acta Ophthalmol. 2014 Sep;92(6):e419-23.

 

A closer look at the evolution of the eye and the brain provides a possible explanation for both the origin of infantile esotropia and its motor characteristics. In the course of evolution, the eyes have moved from a lateral to a frontal position. Consequently, the monocular visual ...
