    Exophoria question

    Schober cross test reveals a combination of exophoria and hyperphoria. Patients tilts chin slightly up and to the left to compensate. I remember learning that with exophoria the head turns towards the affected side. Does this indicate that the exophoria is in the left eye?

    No idea but there's something strange going on. Patient has some difficulty looking left with the left eye which would indicate left esophoria. Base out prism makes it easier to look left but worsens the exophoria.

    Hey guys, are you dispensing opticians or prescribing opticians? Don't know how it works in Belgium (but I'm sure it's interesting)!

    It's neat to talk via the www. to share cases.

    First question: is the patient having problems? Why do you need to analyze the extraocular muscles/binocular vision?
