The Esterman binocular visual field test was performed on 24 amblyopic subjects and 10 normal subjects. No correlation was found between the evaluated clinical parameters and Esterman scores in the patients with amblyopia. The Esterman score may not properly reflect the actual binocular disability in amblyopia.

    Background and Purpose: Amblyopia is commonly treated with part-time occlusion (PTO) therapy. We have made two anecdotal observations regarding this therapy. First, children undergoing full-time occlusion seem to have better success and compliance rates. Secondly, a subset of children exists...

    Purpose: To describe and compare the different methods of preverbal assessment of amblyopia. Results: Each method of visual assessment has its plusses and minuses. Conclusion: There is no "best" method for assessment for amblyopia. The best method may be a combination of the various described tests.
