Abstract

Convergence accommodation (that is the accommodation produced when the eyes converge) is a probable mechanism for the reduced binocular visual acuity seen in patients who control distance exotropia. Minus lens therapy may be advantageous to these patients and is a therapy that may benefit patients who do not demonstrate a high AC/A ratio.
