Learning Objectives

  • 1.1. Define amblyopia 2. Define various aetiologies for amblyopia including: • Refractive, • Strabismus, • Image degradation, • Mixed 3. Define Strabismus, including classifications: • Exotropia • Esotropia • Hypertropia • Constant versus intermittent, • Alternating versus Unilateral
  • 2.1. Define the treatment options for refractive amblyopia, including: 1. Refractive correction, 2. Penalisation/occlusion, 3. Vision Therapy 2. Understand & discuss the considerations for refractive correction: 1. Prescription – how much?, 2. Aniseikonia, 3. Refractive Engineering 3. Understand the merits & considerations for occlusion/penalisation, including: 1. Fogging, 2. Direct & Indirect Patching, 3. Length of treatment, 4. Compliance, 5. Active vs Passive approaches
  • 3.1. Understand the merits of different vision therapy activities aimed at the treatment of anisometropic amblyopia 2. Understand that activities must be presented according to a treatment hierachy, involving consideration of: 1. Monocular skill equalisation 2. Spatial awareness & localisation 3. Biocular versus binocular 3. Understand the use of filters, lenses and prisms to alter space and provide a way for patients to process vision independently or simultaneously through both visual channels
  • 4.1. Deliver vision therapy techniques to patients with amblyopia by adjusting for working distance, target size and/or target brightness. 2. Deliver in-office therapy techniques using equipment including: 1. Vectograms, 2. Cheiroscopes, 3. Prism glasses, 4. Randot targets 3. Deliver therapy techniques requiring home-based reinforcement, by providing the patient with ways to load the activity as they progress.
