Abstract

Purpose

To measure and compare the distance stereoacuity of corrected myopic and hypermetropic children between 6-12 years.

Method

Distance Stereoacuity testing was performed by using Distance RandotRStereotest (manufactured by Stereo Optical Company, Inc.)in twenty-five children with corrected myopia(n=25)and twenty-five children with corrected hypermetropia (n=25) and compare the median value of these two groups.

Result

Distance Stereoacuity was equal in both the groups. (Myopia:Median= 100 arc sec; Hypermetropia: Median= 100 arc sec)

Conclusion

The distance stereoacuity in corrected eyes is not affected by the type of the refractive error i.e. Myopia or Hypermetropia.
