Aim of this study is to analyse the non-surgical management of concomitant strabismus in a tertiary eye care centre in South India.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
A hospital based study of 50 patients who presented with concomitant strabismus were selected, examined and subjected to non-surgical management and analysed.
We found that 36% of patients were between 1 and 10 years. 42% of patients were 11 to 20 years. 22% were above 20 years. Accommodative esotropias had excellent improvement with spectacles. Exophorias of convergence insufficiency improved by orthoptics. Anisometropic amblyopia due to myopia responded better than hypermetropia.
Early detection and early orthoptic treatment give an indication that success rate of sensory orthophoria is higher if detected and treated early. Only cosmetic motor orthophoria is achieved in cases with higher age of detection.
