ABSTRACT
The article presents a conversation among pedriatric ophthalmologists Marilyn Mets, Martin Wilson, Scott Olitsky, moderated by Leonard B. Nelson on the management of high accomodative convergence, accommodation ratio esotropia. The case considered is a pediatric patient who had recent onset esotropia. Dr. Mets said that he will prescribe +2.25 sphere. He believe that children need some time to adapt to glasses before bifocals can be prescribed. Dr. Wilson put emphasis on the importance of discussion with parents with regards to the management of the condition. Dr. Olitsky agree with the concerns of Dr. Wilson on the small amount of hyperopia.
