Abstract

A questionnaire was sent to one third of the ophthalmologists and optometrists in Oregon and Washington . It contained questions pertaining to practitioner attitudes toward their educational backgrounds in visual training. Questions dealing with some of the controversial issues in visual training's role in strabismus and amblyopia therapy were also included. Lastly, profile information and data concerning the practice in general was gathered from each survey recipient. The respondent population was divided into groups by profession and extent of VT offered. The different groups responses were then tabulated and statistically compared within and between professions.
