Surprisingly, exotropia can present some of the most difficult challenges in vision therapy. The treatment of exotropia includes both aligning eyes and making sure the patient performs comfortably and efficiently when the eyes are aligned. Alignment does not ensure comfort, and comfort does not ensure alignment. Procedures for both are needed. How does therapy vary when the exotropia is constant versus intermittent? Day one will cover the basics of exotropia treatment including convergence insufficiency, divergence excess, and constant exotropia. Attendees will finish the day with a understanding of exotropia and a wealth of tools for treating it.


Day two will review clinical pearls for the treatment of Refractive and Strabismic Amblyopia as well as Constant and Intermittent Esotropia, including working around strabismic adaptations such as Eccentric Fixation and Anomalous Retinal Correspondence. Demonstrations of clinical pearls will be provided to help understand moving from the world of esotropia to the world of binocular vision.


Along with information on preschool strabismus, overcorrecting prism, and the Vivid Vision virtual reality system, both days stress the basics underlying the development of stereopsis for performance in life--for exotropic, esotropic, and non-strabismic patients alike.
