Clinical Features and Outcome of Strabismus Surgery in Children
Alketa Tandili, Eli Foto
Pediatric strabismus must be treated early to maximize the potential for binocular vision and decrease the risk of amblyopia. Treatment goals include good vision in each eye and straight eyes. The aim of this study was to describe the outcome of strabismus surgery. The study was conducted at University Hospital Center Mother Theresa in Tirana, Albania over the period 2014 -2015 including one hundred patients. The mean age of patients was 11.9 (3.2) years, with a range 1 to 22 years. 44 % were females and 56 % males. Abnormal head posture was present in 11 % of patients. Extra ocular movements were full in 65.5 % right eyes and 26.5 % left eyes. Regarding the distribution of patients according to visual acuity, 74 % had visual acuity 6/6-6/18, 16 % had visual acuity of <6/60 and 10 % had visual acuity of 6/24-6/60 prior to surgery. Surgery in children with esotropia should be performed as early as possible to preserve stereopsis.
