  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 12 cases of infantile esotropia who underwent surgery atrer the age of 2 years. All the cases were followed up for 5 to 17 years. When classified into four categories after von Noorden, there were 4 cases each (33%) of subnormal binocular vision and microtropia, 3 cases (25%) of small angle eso- or exotropia and 1 case (8%) of large angle esotropia. Five cases (42%) passed the gross stereopsis test and 2 (17%) passed high grade stereopsis test. Based on the fair results in the present series, we advocate surgery for infantile esotropia even after the age of 2 years.
