There has been no simple clinical test which accurately predicts post-therapy visual acuity in amblyopic eyes. Since grating test patterns generally yield optimal visual acuity in amblyopic eyes, the authors sought to determine if pre-therapy laser interferometric grating visual acuity would predict conventional post-therapy visual acuity in functional amblyopia. In 90% of the patients who completed therapy, the pre-therapy laser visual acuity was within two lines of the post-therapy Snellen visual acuity. Thus, pre-therapy laser visual acuity is a good prognostic indicator of conventional post-therapy visual acuity in amblyopic eyes.
