Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to evaluate the retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT) and retinal macular thickness (RMT) in esotropic amblyopic children. METHODS: Twenty-one children diagnosed with esotropic amblyopia at Strabismus and Amblyopia Department of Wenzhou Medical College Affiliated Eye Hospital, China, were enrolled in the study. Their fellow eyes were normal and were used as controls. RNFLT and RMT were measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT). RESULTS: The fovea and the central sector of the retina in amblyopic eyes were slightly but not significantly thicker than those in the normal fellow eyes. There was no significant difference in any section of macular thickness between amblyopic and fellow eyes (p > 0.05). In addition, no significant differences in thickness were found between the retinal nerve fibre layers of amblyopic and normal fellow eyes (p > 0.05). CONCLUSION: There were no differences in the thickness of the foveal and the retinal nerve fibre layers found between eyes with esotropic amblyopia and the normal fellow eyes in children aged seven to 14 years.
