Seventy-three patients from 3 to 64 years of age (average 17.77 [+ or -] 16.02 years) with IXT were studied as regards angle of deviation, fusional convergence and divergence amplitudes (break point and recovery point), and NPC.
The angle of deviation was assessed using prism and alternate cover testing at distance (3 meters) and then at near (33 cm) and recorded in prism diopters (PD).
Investigated parameters were; initiation age of RAE, consultation age, duration of deviation, refractive error, amblyopia, amblyopia treatment, anisometropia, visual acuity and angle of deviation both near (30 cm) and far (6 m).
Angle of deviation greater than 60 PD were treated with three muscle surgery.
It is noteworthy that after APRMT, the angle of deviation may change with time.
As a result, we will study various provisions for alignment, slightly changing the angle of deviation between the two axes of the polygonal from 0 up to 6c.
Comparing the transition curve derived in this study with the other curves in point of curvature change, angle of deviation, lateral acceleration, superelevation and total curve length, the most convenient and economic curve is chosen.
This orientation was considered a 0[degrees] angle of deviation from the current.
Surgery is performed according to angle of deviation, vision level, presence of alternation and ocular motility.
It is useful to record a quantification of the angle of deviation (ie, '15[DELTA] esotropia' rather than 'medium esotropia') and to note the method that is used to obtain this.
