Binocular visual field in strabismus

Can J Ophthalmol. 1976 Jan;11(1):37-41.


The binocular visual field of 100 patients with a variety of manifest strabismus was analysed using a complex visual environment and polaroid dissociation. A significant area of the picture, both nasal and temporal to fixation, was suppressed by all patients. Eighty-nine per cent showed correct localisation and identification in an area which was not suppressed and was approximately 45 prism dioptres peripheral to fixation.
