Curr Opin Ophthalmol. 2001 Oct;12(5):363-7. doi: 10.1097/00055735-200110000-00007.


This year's literature on the detection, prevention, and rehabilitation of amblyopia is again somewhat dominated by the topic of vision screening, specifically photoscreening and also by the therapeutic challenges of compliance and late treatment. Basic scientists also have added to our knowledge and understanding of certain interesting and clinically significant characteristics of the visual perception of amblyopes.
