Pediatric Ophthalmology Subspecialty Day 2018
Amblyopia, Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus
The studies completed by the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group and others have clarified several questions and improved management and patient outcomes of both moderate and severe amblyopia. Although these studies have provided a wealth of scientific information, practical considerations might limit what could be achieved through strict adherence to these advances in knowledge. This video highlights some of the constraints that ophthalmologists typically encounter and the need to find satisfactory approaches that modify what might be ideal practice. Reasoning and logic might dictate treatment modifications regardless of whether their value has been scientifically determined. Selected medicolegal considerations, applicable as well beyond amblyopia management, are considered.
