Evaluation of Exotropia After Patching the Eye or After Prism Adaptation

Research Question:
Does wearing an eyepatch or prism for 24 hours help doctors better diagnose exotropia (when eyes turn outward)?

Basic Study Information

Exotropia is a condition in children when eyes turn outward. The only treatment for exotropia is surgery. This study intends to determine if wearing an eyepatch or eye prism for 24 hours rather than 1 hour is a better way to diagnose exotropia. Patients under 18 years old are eligible if they are diagnosed with divergence excess exotropia (outward turning of the eyes).
