Eglantina Molosiu [2] | Sulejman Zhugli [5]

Abstract: Anisometropic amblyopia is the second most common cause of amblyopia. Anisometropic amblyopia occurs when unequal focus between the two eyes causes chronic blur on one retina. The aim of this study was to describe the treatment of Anisometropic amblyopia in a regional hospital.192 patients with anisometropic amblyopia presenting for examination at Ofthalmologic Clinic of Regional Hospital of Fier in Albania between 2012 and 2014, , were enrolled in the study. The mean age of the patients at study entry was 6.60.9 years (range 3 9 years), 46 % were female and 75 % were white. Table 1 provides the baseline characteristics of the cohort. The mean visual acuity measurement in the amblyopic eyes at study entry was 3/10 in the right eye and in the left eye was 4/10. At the initial 5-week visit, visual acuity improvement from the spectacle-corrected baseline acuity averaged 1.9 1.4 lines, with 54 % of the patients having improvement of 2 or more lines of acuity and 10 % meeting the definition for resolution. If spectacles are not tolerated other option should be considered as, contact lenses, refractive surgery of cornea, etc.
