Congenital Esotropia Observation Study

Protocol

Objective:
To observe the early course of congenital esotropia in order to determine the probability of spontaneous resolution and to try to correlate this finding with various aspects of the esotropia such as the (1) size of the esotropia, (2) variability, and (3) presence of hyperopia.

Study Progress:
175 infants less than 5-months of age were enrolled by 104 sites.

Conclusion:
Early-onset esotropia resolved in 27% of the 170 infants available for follow-up. Resolution was more common when the esotropia was <40 pd and was intermittent or variable. Cases with a constant deviation >40 pd, presenting after 10 weeks of age, and associated with < 3 diopters of hypermetropia, had a low likelihood of spontaneous resolution.
