The reoperation rate is variable. Cross fixation is the use of the right eye to view the left visual field and the use of the left eye to view the right visual field. However, others will eventually require extra-ocular muscle surgery to resolve their problems.

Intraocular infection is rare following strabismus surgery Envotropia should be followed closely for amblyopia, even if they achieve good motor alignment.

This is a small, rhythmic, horizontal movement of the eyes when one eye is closed or covered. When an infant looks with either eye an equal amount of time, the risk of amblyopia is less. Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations.

Infantile Esotropia

The condition can be constantly present, or occur intermittently, and can give the affected individual a “cross-eyed” appearance. Congenitq adults with childhood esotropias of this type congentia use of contact lenses to control their ‘squint. Some signs may give a clue about the sensory development and the prognosis of the condition.


Endotrpia fixation often causes the appearance of not looking directly at a target and parents often wonder if vision is reduced. This alteration between the left and right eye is mostly spontaneous, but may be voluntary in some cases. Early re-alignment has been shown to lead to improved sensory outcomes.

If signs of inferior oblique overaction are noted, surgical weakening of the inferior oblique muscles is usually performed simultaneously. This behavior is very common in children with infantile esotropia.

Thus, in such cases, even when all underlying hyperopic refractive congenitx have been corrected, the child will continue to squint when looking at very small objects or reading small print. It is often seen in patients with moderate amounts of hyperopia. Conjunctivitis allergic Pterygium Pinguecula Subconjunctival hemorrhage. Conjugate gaze palsy Convergence insufficiency Internuclear ophthalmoplegia One and a half syndrome. Fortunately, accommodative esotropia can usually be treated with spectacles.

Ocular rotation Some infants may show some limitation of abduction upon initial examination of eye movements as endotorpia result of cross fixation. If esotropia is corrected before 2 years of age, there is a better chance of developing the ability to use both eyes together, which is referred to as binocularity.

Detailed history taking regarding birth weight, congeniga of birth, the health of the child and developmental milestones may help in the management of the case. The timing of amblyopia treatment in relation to eye muscle realignment encotropia is debatable. Link to Horizontal Strabismus Surgery. This is seen as over-elevation of the eye in supra-adduction. The slow phase is toward the side of the occluded eye. Therefore, they will have poor depth perception and atypical appearance.
