Acute onset comitant esotropia associated with spasm of accommodation in children and adults is a rare clinical condition. When occurring with pupillary miosis and restricted ocular motility, it is referred to as “spasm of near reflex” (SNR) and may require neurological investigation. The natural history of SNR depends on its etiology. There is little information in the literature regarding the long-term follow-up of SNR and the stability of visual signs and symptoms following cessation of treatment. We report a case of SNR in an otherwise healthy young male, and discuss the presentation, clinical investigations, management, response to treatment, and 1-year follow-up.
A 23-year-old male patient reported to the clinic with sudden onset of blurred vision, inward deviation of the eyes, and binocular diplopia. On examination, he was diagnosed to have acute onset esotropia resulting from SNR. He was treated with cycloplegic medications and vision therapy. The condition resolved following 1 year and there has been no recurrence.
Acute adult onset esotropia occurring with accommodative spasm responds favorably to cycloplegic medications but may need a longer course of treatment for successful resolution and stability.
Such a nice optician. My grandson is only 4 and needs glasses. We were so sad, but he explained the issues, and we will follow up as he suggested.
I had such a good experience with the clinic. Very friendly staff and doctor, did not have to wait for long to be called, and was treated respectfully. Thanks, American Family.
Dr. Zurcher has gone above and beyond what any other eye doctor has ever done to figure out what is going on with my eyes. Very happy with American Family Vision.
Family Vision Clinic changed our lives! My daughter was frequently car sick, and she was getting headaches every day, often painful enough that they brought her to tears. We saw a string of doctors and therapists, but we made no progress. Finally, we found Dr. Levi Zurcher and his eye therapist Rain. After ten weeks of eye therapy my daughter no longer gets headaches, and she no longer gets car sick. Daily tears are a thing of the past. I really can’t say enough about this clinic. It was fascinating to watch Dr. Zurcher work. For the first time, someone who knew what they were doing was intently studying my daughter, really trying to figure out all of her eye issues, and his therapist Rain is one of the most patient and lovely people that I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet. We’re finished with eye therapy—yay!—and I have switched to American Family Vision Clinic for all of my family’s other eye health needs.
Very professional, yet kind and helpful. They do what they can to make the appointment comfortable. I was running a bit late, I made sure ti call. They were able to switch me with a patient who was already there, they treated me with respect, and helped my son have confidence by getting him the eye care he needed that day. Thank you so much! Would recommend to anyone. It's a blessing that they care enough to work with people who have all different types of insurance from work to state coverage.
