Abstract

Background: New, small-target (34 that anisometropic amblyopes may pass RDS testing with parafoveal stereopsis despite the presence of central suppression. The STRDS and STBS tests indicated 80% and 96% specificity, respectively, with the original methodologies; STRDS specificity increased to 95% with retesting with a different methodology. Administration time was 30 sec to 60 sec per test. Conclusion: Small-target RDS or suppression testing may be more effective for strabismus and amblyopia screening of preschoolers than previous RDS test formats.
