Tests of Sensory Adaptation and Binocular Function
The Prism Adaptation Test
In the prism adaptation test, binocular function is tested with prisms to align the visual axes to help predict whether fusion may be restored with surgical or prismatic alignment, especially in adults. This test is distinct from the use of prolonged prism adaptation to unmask a larger angle of deviation in acquired esotropia, as described in Chapter 8.
