Dr M.K. Gupta
Despite correction of hyperopia with spectacles, some patients will develop a non-accommodative component to the hyperopia.
Surgery is recommended when there is a greater than 10 prism diopters of constant esodeviation despite full refractive correction. This amount of esotropia prevents binocular visual development.
Some suggest prism adaption with Fresnel prisms prior to surgery. Prism adaption is done by prescribing base-out prism for the residual esotropia after prescribing gul hypermetropic correction. After the patient wears the prism for two weeks, they are evaluated to see if the esotropia has increased in which case the prism would be increased.
This is continued until the esotropia has stabilized.
Surgical options are most often a bilateral medial rectus recession or a monocular recess-resect procedure. The amount of surgery recommended is controversial with some recommending operating for the residual esotropia and other surgeons recommending an augmented approach.
Please contact any good eye surgeon and get advice.
