Reporting of primary infantile esotropia


Dear all,

Its has been six months since the start of reporting of primary infantile esotropia. I have been reliably informed that there may be significant under reporting of cases from some centres. In order to report accurately we are dependent on all of your support to notify us through BOSU (or email if you cannot put your hands on the card). I would be grateful if you could all be vigilant and report any new case seen from October 2017.

Thank you to those who have reported cases so far. We would encourage you to please send back the initial questionnaire. Please inform those who you know do not use the listserve and all your orthoptists.

I have included the case definition and reporting instructions again below. Look forward to your continued support

Best wishes
