Abstract

Background: Adaptation may be defined as a process of advantageous variation and progressive modification whereby an organism becomes adjusted to the conditions of life in harmony with environment. A sensory adaptation to an ocular deviation is the process in which a patient adapts to an interruption in normal binocular vision.  Methods: Cases of EXO and ESO deviation in various age groups and different sexes having central and eccentric fixation were taken. Out of 53 case, 28 were of ESO. Results: Of all the strabismic cases maximum number of cases reported in age group of 11-20 with male preponderance. Conclusions: Because of high sensitivity and very high specificity cuppers test would be the test of choice to find arc in patients with amblyopia.
