One-Year Strabismus Outcomes in the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study

One-Year Strabismus Outcomes in the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study

.....Strabismus developed within the first 12 months of follow-up in 38 pseudophakic infants (66.7%) and 42 infant (74.5%) treated with contact lenses (P = 0.59). The younger cohort ... at the time of surgery demonstrated less strabismus (29 of 50...) than the older cohort (... 51 of 64 ... P<0 .01="" b="">.Intraocular lens placement does not prevent the early development of strabismus
after congenital cataract surgery. However, strabismus was less likely to develop in infants whose cataract was removed at an earlier age 

Comments: As far as I can tell, none of the patients involved had any stimulation of binocular vision post surgical intervention. I would like to see how many individuals develop strabismus if each subject underwent vision therapy to enhance binocular vision. DM
