Strabismus, or ocular misalignment is a common ocular disorder, affecting 3-5% of the population. Untreated strabismus can lead to permanent loss of vision from amblyopia or loss of binocular function and depth perception. This work aimed to further define objective and functional measures to characterize strabismus surgery outcomes and to further define the binocular experience of patients with strabismus using binocular summation as the outcome. The study findings suggest that strabismus causes a decrease in binocular summation compared to normal control subjects.
