Surgical intervention in childhood intermittent exotropia: current practice and clinical outcomes from an observational cohort study

Surgical intervention in childhood intermittent exotropia: current practice and clinical outcomes from an observational cohort study

.....35% of patients had excellent, 28% had fair and 37% had poor primary outcome. .... Satisfactory control was achieved in 65% of patients, while X(T) remained/recurred in 20%. Persistent over-correction occurred in 15% of children..... 40% of those initially over-corrected remained so by last postoperative assessment.....

Comments: 65% of the patients only achieved a fair or worse a poor outcome. 40% were over corrected ad remained that way. Before surgery is attempted, a consultation with a developmental optometrist is suggested. Go to http://covd.org to find such a doctor. DM
