Abstract
PURPOSE
To investigate the predictive factors of successfully weaning children from glasses with accommodative esotropia who were monitored with manifest refraction on follow-up visits. METHODS: A retrospective review of 48 patients with accommodative esotropia was performed. Weaning was accomplished by monitoring patients with manifest refraction on follow-up visits. The patients were divided into 2 groups: patients who were weaned successfully from glasses and patients who still needed glasses at their final visit. A comparative analysis of the multiple clinical features between the 2 groups was performed. RESULTS: Among the 48 patients, 15 patients were weaned successfully from glasses. The age of onset was significantly different between the 2 groups, 39.6 +/- 14.9 months in patients who were weaned successfully from glasses and 30.7 +/- 16.9 months in patients who still needed glasses. In particular, the patients with onset of accommodative esotropia after 3 years of age were more likely to be weaned from glasses at their final visit. CONCLUSIONS: Monitoring with manifest refraction could be another method of weaning children from glasses with accommodative esotropia and the age of onset appears to be the useful predictor of successful weaning in children who can finally be weaned from glasses.
