Zoom Colloquium: Fixational Eye Movements in Strabismus and Amblyopia: Implications for visual function deficits and treatment outcomes
Event Date:

Abstract - We have developed robust and objective measures that do not depend upon the young patient’s cooperation or provider’s assessments of visual acuity and strabismus angle and quantifies the entire spectrum of visual function deficits in a fast, reliable, and pediatric-friendly way. The systematic analysis of fixation eye movement traces obtained in the lab in patients with binocular vision disorders has revealed several features that can be utilized to detect the presence and severity of amblyopia and angle and control of strabismus. We have found that fixation eye movement abnormalities correlate with reduced light sensitivities and depth perception and extent of suppression of vision experienced by these patients. We have also found that assessment of fixation eye movement characteristics can be a useful tool to predict functional improvement post amblyopia and strabismus repair. https://fescenter.org/team/investigators/ghasia-fatema-md/

Improving Zoom accessibility for people with hearing impairments

People with hearing impairments often use lipreading and speechreading to improve speech comprehension. This approach is helpful but only works if the speaker’s face and mouth are clearly visible. For the benefit of people with hearing impairments on Zoom calls, please enable your device’s camera whenever you are speaking on Zoom, and face the camera while you speak. (Feel free to disable your camera when you aren’t speaking.)
