Compensatory Ocular Torsion

Arch Ophthalmol. 2003;121(12):1806. doi:10.1001/archopht.121.12.1806-a

Jampel and Shi1 are to be congratulated for their recent article in which they used sophisticated digital imaging to confirm their previously published belief that there is no compensatory ocular countertorsion of the eye after head tilt. To me, the methodology seems sound and, at first glance, the hypothesis appears convincing. However, after further reflection, there is something unsettling about accepting their conclusions.
