It is important to recognize that patients with organic diagnoses may have some component of amblyopia which may improve with treatment. 5 Ideopathic Amblyopia An unusual presentation is a patient with apparent amblyopia but with no history of strabismus, anisometropia, or visual deprivation. It has been hypothesized that such patients had an amblyopiogenic factor early in life, such as anisometropia, which resolved prior to presentation [56]. Strabismic Amblyopia Strabismic amblyopia is reduced visual acuity in one eye due to misalignment of the eyes.

It is becoming a more common problem today as more extremely premature infants are surviving with the sequelae of severe ROP and subsequent high myopia. Visual impairment in these children with multiple special needs further isolates them. Tychsen has coined the term “visual autism” to refer to the resultant severe visual isolation in these children [51]. Traditional therapy for anisometropic amblyopia includes refractive correction with spectacles or con- tact lenses, minimization of aniseikonia with contact lenses, and amblyopia management with occlusion therapy and/or pharmacologic and optical penalization of the sound eye [21, 24−26, 43].
