Purpose:The aim of the present study is to compare the visual acuity in different types of deviation.
Methods: A pilot, cross sectional, observational study was performed at tertiary eye care centers. Subjects with Ocular deviation between 10 to 40 prism diopters, Corrected distance Visual Acuity should be greater than 6/18 and Age should be between 10 to 40 years of age were included in the study. Visual Acuity was assessed with Log Mar chart.
Result: 30 subjects were included in the study. Out of that,16 subjects were in the age group of 11-20 years, 12 subjects were in the age group of 21-30 years and 2 subjects were in the age group of 31-40 years. 60% subjects were Female and 40% subjects were Male. The mean visual acuity was considered in each type of deviation. It shows that visual acuity will be deteriorated more in Esotropia as compared to Exotropia
Conclusion: Deterioration of visual acuity is observed more in Esotropia as compared to Exotropia.
