Accommodative Esotropia is the type of deviation of eyes or squint which is basically due to accommodation reflex. There are various types of accommodative depending upon different parameter’s such as refractive error, amount and type of squint, age, AC/A ratio and utmost important refraction and vision with follow ups. Considering these factors practitioner can get to the right diagnosis and can start the right treatment having good improvement in vision as well as decrease in the ocular deviations. In Refractive accommodative esotropia giving full cycloplegic treatment is one of the best treatments for better improvements in vision. Follow up of patient can also lead us to the correct diagnosis in early case we can get confused between refractive accommodative esotropia and infantile esotropia, one with a follow ups can lead us if the deviation or the amount of squint decreases or gets ortho with spectacles we can diagnose the case with Refractive accommodative esotropia and if the deviation remains with glasses and without glasses we can diagnose it with infantile esotropia,  in which surgery is the only treatment options for that. So a correct and diagnosis and a correct treatment can give a good results.
