The results for both ocularly normal subjects and subjects with strabismus and/or amblyopia were very varied. We conclude that there is no way of separating a normal response from a pathological response. Regarding visual outcome after amblyopia treatment, VA was found to be stable in the amblyopic eye 10 years after cessation of treatment.The purpose of this study is to elucidate the prevalence of strabismus and amblyopia in a large population of Japanese elementary school children, from Grade 1 to Grade 6, ages ranging from 6 to 12 years. The School Health Law requires that all pupils in Grade 1 to Grade 6 be examined for vision and eye problems.
Amblyopia is caused when the brain prefers (favors) one eye to the other. The brain’s preference (liking) for one eye over the other can weaken andTreatment includes correcting visual obstructions, such as cataracts and other visual abnormalities. Talk to your doctor about the best option for you. The number of children covered by the return of questionnaires was 86,531 (76.4%) of 113,254 total pupils in Grade 1 to Grade 6 in Okayama Prefecture in the year 2003.
While there are no current guidelines to prevent amblyopia, vision screening can help to detect the condition at an early age. There were very few ocular opacities or posterior pole abnormalities.
