This is seen as over-elevation of the eye in supra-adduction. Concomitant esotropia can itself be subdivided into esotropias that are ether constant, or intermittent. These problems may directly affect the extra-ocular muscles themselves, and may also result from conditions affecting the nerve or blood supply cojgenita these muscles or the bony orbital structures surrounding them. The cause of infantile esotropia is unknown. The appropriate treatment approach remains a matter of some debate.

Untreated infantile esotropes can develop excellent vision in each enodtropia, but bifoveal fixation with full binocular function will not be achieved.

American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus

Where a patient tends to consistently fixate with one eye and squint with the other, the eye that squints is likely to develop some amblyopia. Many of these are transient. Conjunctivitis allergic Pterygium Pinguecula Subconjunctival hemorrhage.

Privacy policy About EyeWiki Disclaimers. What is infantile esotropia? On average, by 2 months of age, the optic nerve completes myelinization. Do infants with infantile esotropia need glasses? Residents and Fellows contest rules International Ejdotropia contest rules.

All children with these or other risk factors should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. Look up esotropia in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. Prism adaptation testing PAT may assist in this determination. When infants undergo early surgical intervention, they have a chance of better alignment and stereopsis outcomes. The prognosis for each patient with esotropia will depend upon the origin and classification of their condition.

On the other hand, Chavasse [2] suggested a primary motor dysfunction, where the associated poor fusion and lack enditropia high-grade stereopsis is probably a sensory adaptation to abnormal visual stimulation during early binocular development caused by the motor misalignment.

In certain circumstances, eye muscle surgery may be indicated to correct the problem. Early endotfopia has been shown to lead to improved sensory outcomes.

The over-convergence associated with the extra accommodation required to overcome a hyperopic refractive error can precipitate a loss of binocular control and lead to the development of esotropia. Other less common complications include perforation of the sclera, lost or slipped muscles, infection, anterior segment ischemia, postoperative diplopia, conjunctival granulomas and cysts.

Will my baby have good depth perception when older? Intraocular infection is rare following strabismus surgery Patients should be followed closely for amblyopia, even if they achieve good motor alignment.

The term is from Greek eso meaning “inward” and trope meaning “a turning”.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. DVD is elevation of the non-fixing eye when covered or with visual inattention. Therefore, they will have poor depth perception and atypical appearance. Esotropia is an inward turning of one or both eyes.

The other associated conditions of DVD and latent nystagmus usually appear later in life and may be addressed surgically at that point. Articles lacking in-text citations from May All articles lacking in-text citations Infobox medical condition new.

Esotropia – Wikipedia

Many theories have been postulated regarding the pathogenesis of the disease. For example, the right eye moves conbenita when it looks toward the nose. It is possible to encourage alternation through the use of occlusion or patching of the ‘dominant’ or ‘fixating’ eye to promote the use of the other. Will more than one surgery be required?


Accommodative esotropia also called refractive esotropia is an inward turning of the eyes due to efforts of accommodation. Views Read Edit View history.

Infantile Esotropia – EyeWiki

Inspection of the infant through observation of the visual behavior, head posture and eye movements will establish a presumptive diagnosis. Infantile congfnita begins at birth or during the first year of life. If signs of inferior oblique overaction are noted, surgical weakening of the inferior oblique muscles is usually performed simultaneously.

Some ophthalmologists favour an early surgical approach as offering the best prospect of binocularity whilst others remain unconvinced that the prospects of achieving this result are good enough to justify the increased complexity and risk associated with operating on those under the age of one year.

Latent nystagmus may be present. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Detailed history taking regarding birth weight, complications of birth, the health of the child and developmental milestones may help in the management of the case.

It is often seen in patients with moderate amounts of hyperopia. Hemianopsia binasal endltropia homonymous Quadrantanopia. Examples of conditions giving rise to an esotropia might include a VIth cranial nerve or Abducens palsy, Duane’s syndrome or orbital injury.

Theoretically, the earlier the surgery is performed the better the potential for binocular function. The origin of the condition is unknown, and its early onset means that the affected individual’s potential for developing binocular vision is limited. Why does infantile esotropia occur?
