Abstract

Aims: To find out Prevalence of non-strabismic binocular vision dysfunction in patients with asthenopia in Bhiwani district, Haryana.

Methods: It is a cross-sectional single-centre study including a patient presenting with symptoms of binocular vision anomaly at Tertiary Eye Care Hospital, Bhiwani district, Haryana for 6 months. During 6 months, 39 patients between the age group of 10-30 years were screened.

Results: In this study, a total of 39 subjects were screened, with ages between 10-30years. 27(69.2%) were female and 12(30.8%) were male. The prevalence of non-strabismic accommodative dysfunction was 28.2% (11) and vergence dysfunction was 71.8% (28). The prevalence of specific non-strabismic binocular vision dysfunction was as follows: accommodative insufficiency (20.5%), accommodative excess (7.69%), convergence insufficiency (35.9%), convergence excess (7.69%), divergence insufficiency (7.69%), divergence excess (15.4%), convergence insufficiency with accommodative insufficiency (5.1%).

Conclusions: The present study revealed a high prevalence of non-strabismic binocular dysfunction patients between the ages of 10-30 years old. 71.8% of patients were symptomatic. These findings suggest that it is important to conduct proper eye and binocular vision examinations to detect non-strabismic binocular dysfunction. Therefore, timely diagnosis and management will positively impact their future and increases the quality as well as productivity of life.
