ABSTRACT
The authors describe five children with nasolacrimal duct obstruction who developed anisometropic amblyopia in the same eye. Because three children had no indication of vision loss at their initial presentation, cycloplegic refraction and periodic visual acuity screenings for such patients is recommended.
