ⓘ Anisometropia

Anisometropia is when two eyes have unequal refractive power. Generally a difference in power of two diopters or more is the accepted threshold to label the condition anisometropia.

In some types of anisometropia, the visual cortex of the brain to use both eyes together, binocular vision, and instead suppress the Central vision of one eye. If this happens often enough during the first 10 years of life, while the visual cortex is developing, it can lead to amblyopia, a condition where even the correction of ametropia adequately, face, sight in the affected eye is still correctable to 20 / 20.

The name of the four Greek elements: * a "no," ISO- "same," metr- "measure," OPS "eye."

About 6% of patients aged 6 to 18 years of anisometropia.
