He discusses the etiology of myopia; the treatment, based on targeting the excessive tension of the oblique muscles, including its use in treating astigmatism, anisometropia, anisometropic amblyopia, the loss of depth perception, and progressive myopia; and the reliability of the methodology, including follow-up, troubleshooting, and case examples.
This article analyses some of the problems related to anisometropic prescriptions from a dispensing perspective and discusses potential single vision and multifocal solutions.
Lazy eye, known as amblyopia, is a loss of vision that originates in the brain, typically when a child develops an eye turn (strabismic type) or a substantial difference in refractive error between the eyes (anisometropic type).
The study revealed that people with both normal vision as well as anisometropic amblyopia, showing different images between the two eyes did not matter suggesting that both groups were able to overcome the distracting interference and track the dots successfully.
Patients with ocular disease other than AMD or pterygium and/or nuclear cataracts that could affect refractive error; aphakic or pseudophakic patients; anisometropic patients; and patients with history of refractive or any other ocular surgery other than intravitreal injection were excluded from the study.

One paradigmatic case would be the monitoring of neuroplasticity in young amblyopic children, as short-term homeostatic plasticity has been recently shown to be present in adult amblyopic patients [57] and to be predictive of the occlusion therapy outcome in anisometropic children [58].
