Objective recording of accommodation dynamics was performed in four patients with divergence excess exotropia (two true and two simulated) and in three visually normal control subjects. The accommodative peak velocity/amplitude relationship was normal in the exotropic patients and in the control subjects. Latency for decreasing accommodation was increased significantly, and overshoot frequency was decreased, in the divergence excess exotropes of the true variety, thus demonstrating slightly slowed accommodation dynamics in this diagnostic group. These subtle deviations in response dynamics reflect central rather than peripheral mechanisms.
