Abstract: Purpose: The aim of the present study is to compare the effect of Psychological Implications in different amount of deviations in Alternate Exotropia.
Methods: Prospective, Cross sectional and observational study was performed at tertiary eye care centers. Subjects with Ocular deviation between 10 to 40 prism diopters, Corrected distance Visual Acuity should be greater than 6/18 and Age should be between 10 to 40 years of age were included in the study. Questionnaire was prepared on the effect of Psychological Implications on the Life style in presence of Ocular deviation. Response score of the subjects were noted and Mean score of the responses were compared in different amounts of deviation. Data was analyzed using SPSS software version 20.
Results: 50 subjects were included in the study. Out of that, 28 subjects were included in 11-20 age group, 18 subjects in 21-30 and 4 subjects were in the age group of 31-40 years. 54% subjects were Females and 46% were Males. Comparison of mean score of Questions on Psychological Implications for different amount of deviation for Alternate Exotropia was analyzed and it shows that with increasing amount of Ocular deviation, Psychological Implications hampers more.
Conclusions: In the ocular deviation of Alternate Exotropia, as the amount of ocular deviation increases, Psychological Implications hampers proportionately.
