Of those, between one third and one half have a type of lazy eye known as anisometropia, which is caused by a difference in the degree of nearsightedness or farsightedness between the two eyes.
THIS STUDY randomly assigned 88 children, 7 to 12 years old, who were wearing corrective lenses because of amblyopia caused by differing degrees of near- or farsightedness, known as anisometropia, to one of two treatment groups.
The eyesight may even vary between an individual's two eyes, a condition called anisometropia.
The eyesight may even vary between an individual's two anisometropia.
The eyesight may even vary between an individual's two eyes, a condition called [[anisometropia]].
At 10 years after surgery, anisometropia remained far below the 7. 36-diopter baseline, at an average of 1.47 (range 0.75 to 3.24 diopters).
SAN FRANCISCO -- Refractive surgery provides good long-term outcomes for children and young teens when lasers are used to correct anisometropia, but problems arise over time after lens implantation, according to separate studies reported here.
