Presentation Description :
This talk will go over disconjugate aspects of fixational eye movements as a potential means to detect amblyopia. In particular, we ask whether detection of interocular fixation instability, or variability in alignment of the eyes with respect to one another, could serve as a single sensitive measure for amblyopia, as an alternative to current approaches used in automated screening devices that concentrate on detection of separate amblyopia risk factors. Whether disconjugacy of eye alignment may also be used to guide treatment, notably in preverbal children, as well as assess the efficacy of treatment, will also be discussed.
