Progressive-addition lenses in the management of esotropia with a high accommodation/convergence ratio

Can J Ophthalmol. 1980 Oct;15(4):166-9.


In 25 children esotropia due to abnormal synkinesis between accommodation and accommodative convergence was corrected with progressive-addition lenses. Twelve of the children had been wearing conventional bifocals; the other 13 were given progressive lenses for the first time. The near esodeviation was satisfactorily neutralized in most cases, and nearly all the children had some stereopsis. All adapted well and without difficulty to the progressive lenses.
