Purpose: Standard treatment of anisometropic amblyopia sited by most pediatric ophthalmology texts is prescribing optical correction, and full time occlusion of the sound eye. Here in, we report results of prescribing optical correction, with no or minimal occlusion therapy. Methods: 49 consecutive anisometropic patients without strabismus were retrospectively studied. All received cycloplegic spectacle correction, but no occlusion therapy far the first 3 weeks. If vision did- not significantly improve with spectacles alone then the sound eye was patched for. 2 to 4 hours per day.
