Atropin, Occlusion, Amblyopia


Background: AIM: To evaluate the efficacy and compliance between occlusion and
pharmacological penalisation among the amblyopic patients. Material And Methods: Prospective study of
52 patients between age group of 2-10 years having first time diagnosed as amblyopia were randomly
selected .twenty six patients were treated with atropine (group a) and remaining twenty six patients had
occlusion therapy(group o). Visual acquity was measured with various visual charts. Result: Group a had
mean visual acquity improvement of 0.37 logmar (95% cl 0.312 to 0.441) and group o had 0.61 logmar(95%
cl 0.564 to 0.681). Both group showed p<0.001 which is highly significant. Non-compliance was observed in
5 patients (19.23%) of group a and 9 patients (34.62%) of group o. No incidence of occlusion amblyopia was
seen in any group. Conclusion: Both group showed substantial reduction in amblyopia. Chi-square value of
both group is 20.449(p<0.001) which suggest that occlusion therapy have better visual prognosis than
atropine but the compliance is better with atropine. [Damor M Natl J Integr Res Med, 2023; 14(4):06-10,
