ABSTRACT
The article reports that depth perception improvement in children with intermittent exotropia could result from treatment, according to a presentation by Jonathan M. Holmes at the 2008 American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting. In a study of pediatric patients whose stereoacuity was measured before and after eye muscle surgery to correct intermittent exotropia, Holmes explained the majority of eyes were well-aligned. He cited several arguments for surgery, including social reasons and the possibility of improving stereoacuity.
