Prematurity, hydrocephalus, seizure disorders, developmental delay, intraventricular hemorrhage and a family history of strabismus are among the risk factors for the development of infantile esotropia.

There are surgical and nonsurgical treatments cognenita for exotropia. These problems may directly affect the extra-ocular muscles themselves, and may also result from conditions affecting the nerve or blood supply to these muscles or the bony orbital structures surrounding them.

Infantile Esotropia

Even though they are exerting a normal amount of accommodative or ‘focusing’ effort, the amount of convergence associated with this effort is excessive, thus giving rise to esotropia. Accomodative esotropia manifests as eye inturning secondary to the increased work of focusing through significant hypermetropia.

Will more than one surgery be required? It is a constant esotropia of large and consistent size with onset between birth and six months of age.

Infantile Esotropia — AAPOS

Amblyopia occlusion treatment after the eyes are aligned can interfere with the exercise of binocularity. The cause of infantile esotropia is unknown.


Someone with esotropia will squint with either the right or the left eye but never with both eyes xongenita. What is infantile esotropia? Most children with infantile esotropia demonstrate a deficit of depth perception when old enough to be tested reliably. Are other eye alignment problems associated with infantile esotropia? In a left esotropiathe left eye ‘squints,’ and in a right esotropia the right eye ‘squints. DVD is elevation of the non-fixing eye when covered or endltropia visual inattention.

Understanding visual milestones and anatomic development is mandatory for precise visual assessment of the child. Multiple surgeries may be needed to correct large angle esotropia. Identification of the proper deviation in infancy without evidence of cranial nerve palsies or systemic disease to explain the deviation. The origin of the condition is unknown, and its early onset means that the affected individual’s potential for developing binocular vision is limited.

Incomitant esotropias are conditions in which the esotropia varies in size with direction of gaze. The appropriate treatment approach remains a matter of some debate. When infants undergo early surgical intervention, they have a chance of better alignment and stereopsis outcomes. On the other hand, Chavasse [2] suggested a primary motor dysfunction, where the associated poor fusion and lack of high-grade stereopsis is probably a sensory adaptation to abnormal visual stimulation during early binocular development caused by the motor misalignment.

Examples of conditions giving rise to an esotropia might include a VIth cranial nerve or Abducens palsy, Duane’s syndrome or orbital injury.

It is the opposite of exotropia and usually involves more severe axis deviation than esophoria. Optokinetic response to detect smooth pursuit and saccade eye movements will aid in the diagnosis of amblyopia. Therefore, they will have poor depth perception eendotropia atypical appearance.


Esotropia – Wikipedia

In certain circumstances, eye muscle surgery may be indicated to correct the problem. Hemianopsia binasal bitemporal homonymous Quadrantanopia. It is a predominantly horizontal jerk nystagmus elicited by occluding either eye.

A second type of accommodative esotropia also exists, known as ‘convergence excess esotropia. The standard approach for treatment is bilateral medial rectus recessions which weakens the medial recti the muscles pulling the eyes inward. Ocular rotation Some infants may show some limitation of abduction upon initial examination of eye movements as a result of cross fixation.

Original article contributed by: At endotrolia age should surgery for infantile esotropia be done? However, if farsighted, spectacles may be prescribed.

What is cross fixation?

Many infants may freely alternate their fixation. Diseases of the human eye H00—H59 — Additional tests may include prism adaptation and diagnostic occlusion. We know there is an inability to use cngenita two eyes together.

Esotropias can be concomitant, where the size of the deviation does not vary with direction of gaze—or incomitant, where the direction of gaze does affect the size, or indeed presence, of the esotropia.
