Concomitant esotropia can itself be subdivided into esotropias that are ether constant, or intermittent. A second type of accommodative esotropia also exists, known as ‘convergence excess esotropia. The origin of the condition is unknown, and its early onset means that the affected individual’s potential for developing binocular vision is limited. Cross fixation endtropia causes the appearance of not looking directly at a target and parents often wonder if vision is reduced.

Occasionally a vertical acting eye muscle inferior oblique may congenitta which may cause the eye to move up when looking to the side. Some signs may give a clue about the sensory development and the prognosis of the condition. Many infants may freely alternate their fixation.

It is the opposite of exotropia and usually involves more severe axis deviation than esophoria. Thus, surgical correction should be performed endtoropia during infancy.


Infantile Esotropia — AAPOS

Intraocular infection is rare following endotroopia surgery Patients should be followed closely for amblyopia, even if they achieve good motor alignment.

Do infants with infantile esotropia need glasses? Retrieved 1 February Link to strabismus surgery entry.

Complete sensory evaluation in a preverbal child is difficult. Early re-alignment has been shown to lead to improved sensory outcomes. The other associated conditions of DVD and latent nystagmus usually appear later in life and may be addressed surgically at that point.

Infantile Esotropia

Identification of the proper deviation in infancy without evidence of cranial nerve palsies or systemic disease to explain the deviation. If signs of inferior oblique overaction are noted, surgical weakening of the inferior oblique muscles is usually performed simultaneously. Esotropias can be concomitant, where the size of the deviation does not vary with direction of gaze—or incomitant, where the direction of gaze does affect the size, or indeed presence, of the esotropia.

Other less common complications include perforation of the sclera, lost or slipped muscles, infection, anterior segment ischemia, postoperative diplopia, conjunctival granulomas and cysts. Many theories have been postulated regarding the pathogenesis of the disease. Examples of conditions giving rise to an esotropia might include a VIth cranial nerve or Abducens palsy, Duane’s syndrome or orbital injury. Will more than one surgery be required?

Cross fixation is the use of the right eye to view the left visual field and the use of endotropoa left eye to view the right visual field. It is the most frequent type of natural strabismus not only in humans, but also in monkeys. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.


Surgery is performed when any associated amblyopia has been treated and the amount of esotropia is stable. Exophthalmos Enophthalmos Orbital cellulitis Orbital lymphoma Periorbital cellulitis. It is possible to encourage alternation through the use of occlusion or patching of the ‘dominant’ or ‘fixating’ eye to promote the use of the other.

Ophthalmoparesis Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia Kearns—Sayre syndrome. Some surgeons treat amblyopia before performing surgery to create a stronger visual drive for straight eyes and thus better ehdotropia. Stability of the esotropia angle is assessed prior to surgical intervention.

Transactions of the American Ophthalmological Society. Incomitant esotropias are conditions in which the esotropia varies in size with direction of gaze. It occurs because the brain ignores input from an eye. This article includes a list of referencesbut its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. The vast majority of esotropias are primary. Some children become significantly farsighted as they grow and develop accommodative esotropia. All children with these or other risk factors should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist.
