Abstract:

The purpose for the new design is to give an initial indication of the presence or absence of individual muscle abnormalities in the human eye. The prism cover test may be used along with the deviometer to determine the exact amount of heterotropia at each of the six cardinal positions of the eye. This information may be obtained by having the patient look at a suitable light source one of the two lights of the rotating arm from a prescribed distance and then moving the light or the patients head in such a way that he is looking toward the right or left, up and down, and at the level of the rotating light in each position.
