Panoramic viewing, visual acuity of the deviating eye, and anomalous retinal correspondence in the intermittent exotrope of the divergence excess type

Am J Optom Physiol Opt. 1979 Jul;56(7):422-9. doi: 10.1097/00006324-197907000-00003.


Monocular visual acuities in a binocular field of view, field of view under binocular conditions, and retinal correspondence were investigated in five intermittent exotropes of the divergence excess type. Results indicated that all five intermittent exotropes demonstrated (1) normal visual acuity in the deviating eye without suppressing the fixating eye, (2) a lateral extension of the temporal field of view (panoramic viewing), (3) anomalous retinal correspondence.
