PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to describe the use of Bangerter filters in adults having intractable diplopia.
METHODS/CASE REPORTS: A series of adults having intractable diplopia caused by either cyclotorsion, retinal disease, monocular diplopia, or rapid alternating fixation who were treated with Bangerter filters is reported. Detailed case reports on 4 of the 10 patients are included.
CONCLUSION: Bangerter filters can be used to mitigate diplopia that cannot be eliminated with either prism, modification of the spectacle prescription, vision therapy, or extraocular muscle surgery. The weakest density filter that eliminates the diplopia should be prescribed. Prospective studies reporting the long-term efficacy and quality of life with the filters are needed.
