Binocular vision in amblyopia: structure, suppression and plasticity

Binocular vision in amblyopia: structure, suppression and plasticity

The amblyopic visual system was once considered to be structurally monocular. However, it now evident that the capacity for binocular vision is present in many observers with amblyopia. .... new treatments are emerging that directly target suppressive interactions within the visual cortex and, on the basis of initial data, appear to improve both binocular and monocular visual function, even in adults with amblyopia. The aim of this review is to provide an overview of recent studies that have investigated the structure, measurement and treatment of binocular vision in observers with strabismic, anisometropic and mixed amblyopia....

The amblyopic visual system was once considered to be structurally monocular.
However, it now evident that the capacity for binocular vision is present in many
observers with amblyopia. This has led to new techniques for quantifying suppres-
sion that have provided insights into the relationship between suppression and
the monocular and binocular visual deficits experienced by amblyopes. Further-
more, new treatments are emerging that directly target suppressive interactions
within the visual cortex and, on the basis of initial data, appear to improve both
binocular and monocular visual function, even in adults with amblyopia. The aim
of this review is to provide an overview of recent studies that have investigated
the structure, measurement and treatment of binocular vision in observers with
strabismic, anisometropic and mixed amblyopia
