Clinical and subclinical oculomotor findings in the Eaton-Lambert syndrome

J Clin Neuroophthalmol. 1983 Mar;3(1):19-22.


Five patients with the Eaton-Lambert syndrome were examined neuro-ophthalmologically. Three were studied using electro-oculographic saccadic velocity recordings. Four complained of blurred vision and all complained of ptosis during the course of their disease. Clinical examination revealed mild ptosis in three of the five patients. Saccadic velocities before exercise were normal. After saccadic exercise, an increase in velocity of up to 40% was noted in two of the three patients studied.
