To assess the application of extreme mono vision either with intraocular lens surgery or with corneal refractive excimer laser as a viable method for diplopia treatment


Ophthalmos Research and Therapeutic Institute, Ygeia Hospital, Athens, Greece


Case series of 10 patients with longstanding diplopia that underwent induction of extreme mono vision by cataract surgery (5 patients) or cornea refractive surgery (3 pseudophakic, 2 phakic patients). Myopia between -2,75 and -3,50 was induced in the non dominant eye.


Reduction or elimination of symptoms was reported by all patients with no compromise in their distance visual acuity.


Extreme mono vision is a useful approach when trying to reduce or eliminate symptoms of longstanding diplopia. FINANCIAL DISCLOUSRE: NONE
