Non-refractive Esotropia

Non-refractive Esotropia is where the inward eye turn exists but is not associated with a high degree of longsightedness. In these cases Vision Therapy would again be recommended to attempt to retrain the co-ordination of the eyes.

In some extreme cases of high degrees of eye turn that are not treatable by either spectacles nor Vision Therapy, then referral to a Paediatric Ophthalmologist may be indicated to assess suitability for corrective eye muscle surgery.

It is recommended that in these cases that post surgery Vision Therapy is conducted by a Behavioural Optometrist in order to teach the child how to reuse their ‘new’ visual system.
