IT SEEMS that many practicing ophthalmologists, especially residents in ophthalmology, have an erroneous idea that anomalous retinal correspondence cannot exist in a case of alternating squint or in cases in which there is equal vision in the two eyes.
The belief that anomalous retinal correspondence is rare in alternating strabismus probably arises from the conflicting views expressed by various authors. Thus, Kramer * states: "It is interesting but as yet unexplainable why anomalous retinal correspondence is predominately associated with amblyopia exanopsia." Strazzi,2 in studying 80 patients, 60 of whom had uniocular strabismus, also states: "A prevalence of anomalous retinal correspondence was noted in patients with amblyopia." Stephenson3 stated that anomalous retinal correspondence is more prominent in unilateral squint than in essential alternating squint. But he adds that it does develop in an appreciable number of cases of alternating squint.
On the other hand, Lyle † states:
