MainosMemos contains the latest research and information about eye and vision care of children, developmental disabilities, Traumatic/Acquired Brain Injury and other topics of interest to me (and hopefully you!).
....VEP is a very important tool to understand the complex amblyopic
mechanism. Although the superior VA of the sound eye, the VEP
alterations demonstrate the functional abnormality of the eye considered
“good”. More studies are necessary to explain why the sound eye in
amblyopic children cannot be considered completely normal therefore,
special attention should be paid to amblyopic treatment, as patching can
have a negative effect on the sound eye.....
Comments: The better seeing eye in amblyopia is not so "good" after all. Optometry has know this for some time....and that is why optometric vision therapy is important to improve all aspects of vision function in the patient with amblyopia. DM
