Further Outpatient Care

Patients with stable monofixation syndrome should have routine follow-up care.

If patients have been treated for amblyopia, then the frequency of visits is determined by the intensity of their treatments.

Monofixation syndrome may deteriorate, and patients may develop larger tropia, decreased stereovision, or diplopia. [8] Risk factors for deterioration may include timing of initial treatment, exotropia, and strength of fusion. Surgical treatment can often reduce the tropia and restore secondary monofixation syndrome.



The prognosis for alignment and maintenance of subnormal binocularity is excellent.
