Am J Optom Physiol Opt. 1987 Nov;64(11):861-5. doi: 10.1097/00006324-198711000-00010.


The efficacy of extraocular muscle surgery and visual training for strabismus, in a limited number of cerebral palsy patients, are examined. Longitudinal data on tropias are presented for surgically treated patients. Short-term effects of visual training for another group of patients are described. Longitudinal data on tropias are presented for a group of cerebral palsy patients who received no strabismus therapy.
