  2. @Nor Arifah Zakaria ehem2.. regarding your question above,
    1) this patient is referred from ORC and he already had done the cyclo & post-cyclo before this. the referred letter already stated all the findings. so then, we jus redo the post-cyclo and the result is like on the table above :D
    However, I think since this patient is having exotropia, we actually doesn't need to do cyclo rite? huhu

    2) the treatment is possible if the patient follow the management given. but i'm not 100% guarantee the ablyopia will recover. hehe 8-}
