The article discusses research being done on the angles of accommodative esotropia and cessation of glasses for hyperopia. It references a study published in a 2009 issue of the journal "Acta Ophthalmologica." The study involved 123 patients suffering from accommodative esotropia who experienced emmetropia and maintained orthophoria without hyperopic glasses. Researchers found that the degree of hyperopia appeared to be associated with the angle of esotropia and the age of cessation of corrective eyeglasses.
