  2. 2. When it comes to treating the patient with strabismus many ophthalmologists think of surgery first, but there are several instances where the non-surgical method is best!
  3. 3. What is the prescription aim? Our purpose is best visual acuity in distance versus binocular alignment  Certainly ,we want to eliminate any amblyogenic factors by using the optical correction and consider the binocular status
  4. 4. Prescribing for Children • In adults, the correction of refractive errors has one measurable endpoint: the best corrected visual acuity. • Prescribing visual correction for children often has two goals: 1- providing a focused retinal image 2- achieving the optimal balance between accommodation and convergence.
  5. 5. spectacle Create sharp retinal image that improve fusion Assist balance between accomodation and convergence Trend is prescribe full amount of refractive error in cycloplagia Young children normally accept the correct glass General Rules
  6. 6. Search for hurt behind nose or pinch the nose or uncomfortable frame Atropinization of both eyes for 3 to 4 days in case with unable to relax accomodation Explain indication in the presence of normal vision(refractive accomodative ET) Consider full corection from infancy through pre school age spectacle
  7. 7. Consider prescibe BCVA in old children Hypermetropic correction greater than +2 in esotropic patient spectacle

GlassBifocal Valuable in high AC/A ratio accomodative ET Restricted in whom that were orthotropic or small angle ET in far by FCR but residual ET at near that convert to orthotropia or esophoria by additional plus lens Contraindication is amblyopia and not complete elimination of ET in near
  10. 10. Start with +1 sph and increase power in step of +0.5 up to +3 sph Minimal power that convert ET to E prescribed(prevent excessive relaxation of accommodation) Success depend on proper bifocal segment Prefer straight top segment which bisect pupil or touch lower border in straight head position GlassBifocal

  12. 12. High AC/A Ratio  Any uncorrected hyperopic refractive error will trigger convergenece , therefore 0.50 D ,should be full corrected  It may be possible to avoid bifocal by simply slightly overplussing the patient with a single vision correction ( +0.50 +0.75D )  Bifocal strength +2 +3.5 D  Bifocal are often eliminated in the teenage years

  14. 14. Aim of IXT treatment Reducing episodes of manifest exotropia Facilitating sensory fusion and achieving constant binocular alignment and normal stereoacuity.
  15. 15. Nonsurgical management is indicated In patients with excellent control as measured by normal distance stereoacuity In young children who are at risk of developing monofixational esotropia from persistent surgical overcorrection
  16. 16. In children By maintaining the potential for equal vision in each eye and preserving binocular fusion status. Nonsurgical techniques such as minus lenses and prisms can prevent or reverse early sensory anomalies
  17. 17. Refractive Errors • Unequal clarity in vision represents an obstacle to fusion and can facilitate suppression, contributing to progressive loss of control in X(T). • Significant RE, especially astigmatism and anisometropia, need to be corrected.
  18. 18. • All patients in minus lenses should be seen within 3 to 4 weeks after starting the therapy. • Minus lenses should be discontinued if esotropia develops. • There are studies that suggest that this treatment may induce myopia • As the child grows older, asthenopic symptoms with over-minus lenses become prominent as the amount of near work increases
  19. 19. • Part time patching of the non-deviating eye for four to six hours daily may convert an intermittent exotropia to a phoria. • Although the benefit is usually temporary, occlusion can be used to postpone surgical intervention in responsive patients • Alternate occlusion may be used in patients with equal fixation preferences • Initially the results are evaluated after 4 months of occlusion. • If the angle of deviation is decreased the occlusion should be continued and assessment made every 4 months until no further change occurs. • In case there is no improvement for 4 months, it is discontinued Occlusion
  20. 20. Various Non-Surgical Therapies for Intermittent Exotropia Corrective lenses for any significant RE part time Alternate Occlusion Minus lenses Therapy Orthoptics (Including Convergence exercises) Therapeutic Base – in prisms Botulinum Toxin
  21. 21. Indications for Surgery Once deterioration is documented Waiting until deterioration has relentlessly progressed may reduce the chance of obtaining an excellent surgical outcome So improving fusional states accompanied by higher surgical success rate
  22. 22. The AAO PPP pediatric glass prescribing guideline
  23. 23. • When hyperopia and esotropia coexist, initial management includes full correction of the cycloplegic refractive error. • Later, reductions in the amount of correction may be appropriate, based on the amount of esotropia and level of stereopsis at near and at distance with the full cycloplegic correction in place
  24. 24. Hyperopia associated with partly of full accommodative esotropia  When hyperopia is associated with overt esotropia or ever large esophoria , a full cycloplegic correction should be prescribed  The principle is to prescribed the maximum plus the patient will accept without degrading the visual acuity  Generally this equals the full cyclopentolate or atropine refration upto the age 2 years because the patients enviroment is close at hand and subjective tests are not possible  In older children 0.50 – 1.00 D should be subtracted  In some cases of acc /ET an extra + 0.50 D could make some difference to the strabismus

  30. 30. Ophthalmic Prism • Prisms function by bending rays of light towards the base of the prism. • The degree of bending of light depends upon the angle of incidence of light and the prismatic power.

  33. 33. Ophthalmic Prism PRESCRIBING INDUCED PRISM BY INTENTIONALLY DISPLACING THE OPTICAL CENTERS  Light traveling through the optical center of a lens encounters no prismatic power and passes through undeviated.  However, as the distance from the optical center increases, increasing prismatic power is encountered.  Prentice's rule : This is defined algebraically using the formula: Δ = hD where Δ = prism diopters , h = distance from the optical center in centimeters, and D= power of the lens in diopters.  Of note, the direction of displacement of light depends on whether the lens is of minus or plus power : - Minus lenses function as prisms held apex to apex; that is, as if the apex of the prism were at the optical center of the lens. - In other words, a ray of light traveling above the optical center encounters base-up prism power, and a ray traveling below the optical center encounters base-down prism.
  34. 34.  In the mid 1960's, the 150-year-old Fresnel principle was applied to ophthalmic prisms for the first time. The first ophthalmic Fresnel prism, known as the "wafer" prism, was molded of an acrylic resin, making it much lighter and thinner than the corresponding powers of conventional prisms, thus extending the useful range of prism powers.  In 1970, the Press-OnTM prism, a Fresnel-principle prism molded in flexible plastic, was introduced to ophthalmologists. This thin, light membrane prism had the advantage of conforming and adhering to a smooth surface and thus could be affixed directly to a plano or basecurved correcting spectacle lens.

  36. 36. Fresnel – On Prism • Fresnel prisms are constructed as a series of very narrow adjacent prisms on a thin sheet of plastic. • The prism is flexible, enabling it to conform to the base curve of the spectacle lens. • The commercially available powers of Fresnel prisms (in increments of 1 from 1 to 10, a power of 12, and in increments of 5 from 15 to 40).

  59. 59. Ophthalmic Prism OTHER CLINICAL USES OF PRISM  Prisms have been incorporated into contact lenses as a means of correcting vertical diplopia, but this method is only rarely used.  In some cases, prisms may be prescribed as a form of eye ‘exercise’, For example, in convergence insufficiency, the patient might be prescribed base out prism over both eyes to increase the exotropia at near.  This is typically provided as a removable Fresnel prism that is worn part of the day, with the goal of making the patient more comfortable the rest of the day when the prism is not worn.  Prisms may be used in the setting of nystagmus to improve head positions and to improve acuity.[To correct head positions, prisms are ‘yoked’ to shift the image into the null zone area. For example, a patient who has a right head turn and a null point in left gaze would be treated with base-out
  60. 60. How to Prescribe a Prism for Combined Vertical and Horizontal Strabismus OBLIQUE PRISMS The Procedure  Estimating prism power. A good way to arrive at a starting prism power is to take the higher power prism measurement and add one-half of the lower power measurement.  For example, take a hypothetical patient with 20 prism diopters of esotropia and 10 PD of left hypertropia. The higher power measurement (20) is added to half the lower power measurement (10 ÷ 2 = 5). Therefore, a 25-PD handheld prism is selected.  Testing the prism. This prism is then placed before the nondominant eye. Assuming the left eye is nondominant, the 25-PD handheld prism would be placed with the base out and slightly down in front of the left eye to correct the combined esotropia and left hypertropia.  This prism is rotated slowly clockwise or counter-clockwise until the patient notes that the two images are fused.
  61. 61. How to Prescribe a Prism for Combined Vertical and Horizontal Strabismus OBLIQUE PRISMS The Procedure  If the patient is unable to fuse, another prism is selected (start with a prism one increment higher or lower—in this case either a 30-PD or 20-PD and the process is repeated until fusion occurs.  Prescribing the prism. A wax pencil is then used to draw a line directly on the outside of the spectacles, using the base of the handheld prism as a guide. The clinician writes a prescription that includes the prism power and a statement regarding the orientation of the prism. For the above example, the prescription would read: ―25-PD Fresnel prism base out and down as marked.
  62. 62. Ophthalmic Prism OBLIQUE PRISMS  Oblique prisms are required when trying to prescribe a single Fresnel prism for a combined vertical and horizontal deviation. Vector addition is used to combine horizontal and vertical prism. For example, combining 5 Δ base up with 5 Δ base out may be solved using the Pythagorean theorem (for a right triangle with sides a, b, andc, with c the hypotenuse, a2 + b2 = c2). In this case, 52 + 52 = c2 = 50; so, c = √50. Thus, 7.1 Δ of Fresnel prism may be prescribed base up and out in the 45° meridian. More complex combinations of vertical and horizontal prisms may be determined by applying basic trigonometric relationships of right triangles, or more practically by measuring the combination of vertical and horizontal prism in the lensmeter. When prescribing a combination of vertical and horizontal prism for ground-in prism, these calculations are not necessary, as most opticians prefer to be given the horizontal and vertical components separately.
  64. 64. How to Prescribe a Prism for Combined Vertical and Horizontal Strabismus OBLIQUE PRISMS CASE ONE: A 75-year-old woman with Graves disease complained of diplopia.  Motility testing showed 25 PD of left hypertropia and 10 PD of esotropia.  A 30-PD handheld prism was chosen (25 + half of 10),  Held base down and out in front of the nondominant left eye.  The prism was rotated slightly clockwise and counter- clockwise until fusion occurred.  The outside of the glasses were marked with a wax pencil along the base of the prism.  An optician applied a 30-PD Fresnel prism with the base oriented as marked. The prism relieved the diplopia in primary gaze.
  65. 65. How to Prescribe a Prism for Combined Vertical and Horizontal Strabismus (OBLIQUE PRISMS) CASE TWO: A 52-year-old woman developed incomitant strabismus with binocular oblique diplopia following an embolization procedure for a dural arteriovenous fistula.  Motility testing showed 10 PD of exotropia and 8 PD of left hypotropia in primary gaze.  A 15-PD handheld prism was chosen (10 + half of 8, rounded off to the closest available Fresnel prism power), held base in and up in front of the left eye,  Then rotated in a manner similar to that described above until fusion occurred.  The glasses were marked with a wax pencil.  The patient took the marked glasses to an optician for application of a 15-PD Fresnel prism, base in and up to the left spectacle lens.  The prism corrected the diplopia in primary gaze.
  66. 66. Ophthalmic Prism SLAB-OFF PRISM  Patients who have anisometropia may suffer from diplopia or asthenopia when the line of sight does not pass through the optical centers of their spectacles.  This occurs because the displacement induces a net prismatic effect.  In general, most patients are able to use fusional abilities to adapt to the induced horizontal prism.  However, vertical gaze is often quite problematic. For example, a patient who has a refractive error of –3.00 OD and +1.00 OS will have induced prism when looking away from the optical center. If this patient looks 1 cm below the optical centers to read, the induced prismatic power will be 3Δ (1 cm ×3 D) of base-down prism on the right and 1Δ (1 cm ×1 D) of base-up prism on the left, giving a net prismatic effect of 4Δ base down on the right (base up on the left). Cover testing would reveal a 4Δ left hypertropia in the reading position.  There are several options for treating the vertical prismatic effects
  67. 67. Ophthalmic Prism MEASURING PRISM IN SPECTACLES  The effective prism power in spectacle lenses is the combination of ground-in prism plus prism induced by displacement of the optical centers. To measure the amount of effective prism in spectacles, ask the patient to fixate on your own eye, then mark the point where line of sight intersects the lens using a felt tip marker. (The line of sight is the line connecting the object of regard with the center of the pupil.) The prism power at this location is the effective prism power. (This may or may not be the intended prism power depending on whether or not the optician correctly placed the optical center of the lens in front of the patient's pupil.) The glasses are then positioned on the lensmeter such that the mark on the lens is centered within the lensmeter port. If no prism is present, the mires representing the two cylindrical axes will intersect in the center of the lensmeter reticle. If prism is
  68. 68. Ophthalmic Prism WRITING A PRISM PRESCRIPTION  When prescribing prisms, it is important to specify the amount and direction of the prism in addition to the lens or lenses into which the prism should be incorporated. Fresnel prisms are useful as a trial before grinding the prism into the spectacle lens. In our experience, it is best if Fresnel prisms are placed in the office or by a trusted optician; errors in positioning are frequent when the prisms are placed by inexperienced individuals.  Prescriptions requiring prism must be written with special care to avoid errors. It is advisable to communicate directly with the optician for particularly complex prescriptions. For combined vertical and horizontal deviations requiring oblique Fresnel prisms, the axis of the base must be specified using degrees as for astigmatic lenses. However, the astigmatic axis allows for two positions of the base; that is, ‘10Δ base 30°’ could be interpreted as ‘10Δ base up-and-out in the 30° meridian’, oras ‘10Δ base down-and-in

Convergence insufficiency  Most effective treatment  Converge on an approaching object such as pencil or a light while red filter is placed over one eye  Aware of physiologic diplopia of a distant object while fixing on a target at near  Training fusional convergence with base out prism or major amblyoscope  Base out prism used during reading and continue on home with increasing power
  92. 92. Fusion training  Training of fusion amplitude enable symptomatic heterophoria patient more comfortable  Done by major amblyoscope or prism exercise
  93. 93. Antisuppression Training  Orthoptic is aimed to awareness of physiologic diplopia in heterophoria and diplopia in heterotropia  Once diplopia elicited vergence control activated  Forcing suppressed area concurrently with corresponding area of dominant eye  Stimulation of retina of deviated eye by moving visual target on major amblyoscope back and forth across suppression scotoma  Suppression cannot be effectively eliminated by orthoptic
  94. 94. ARC  Treatment is no longer practiced  The methods that were used are historical and theoretic  Based on principle that if the image of the fixation point is moved with the amblyoscope over the retina of the deviated eye anomalous localization of the double image may suddenly be replaced by normal localization  ARC had benefit in preserving advantage of normal binocular vision so do not treat it
