Double tenotomy of the interni and correction of the hypermetropia effected the cure of the squint.
hypermetropia was found then in 47 per cent of all the cases.
Ophthalmoscopically with atropine the same degree of hypermetropia.
Donders declares no other conclusion to be possible, than this, that the hypermetropia is the cause of the squint.
The influence of hypermetropia is very apparent in the percentage of periodic squint.
It is important to notice that Donders' theory makes convergent squint appear as almost a necessary consequence of hypermetropia.
Limits of error in the subjective and objective determination of hypermetropia.
According to this the percentage of the hypermetropia (including doubtful cases) amounts to 66 per cent.
Long-sight, or hypermetropia, signifies that the eyeball is too short or the lens too flat.
In full acuity of vision even high degrees of hypermetropia are no trouble to children.
hypermetropia hy·per·me·tro·pi·a (hī'pər-mĭ-trō'pē-ə)
hyperopia hy·per·o·pi·a (hī'pə-rō'pē-ə)
Abbr. H An abnormal condition of the eye in which vision is better for distant objects than for near objects. It results from the eyeball being too short for light rays to properly focus on the retina, thus forming a blurred image. Also called farsightedness, hypermetropia.
A defect of the eye that causes light to focus behind the retina instead of directly on it, resulting in an inability to see near objects clearly. Hyperopia is often caused by a shortened eyeball or a misshapen lens. Also called farsightedness. Compare myopia.
