Some of my classmates and I will be presenting a BV case to our class about a fully refractive accommodative esotropic 6 year old patient with amblyopia (20/70 OS, 20/20 OD). We will obviously prescribe the full cycloplegic refraction, but we have had some discussion about how to correct the amblyopia. We've discussed atropine and patching (both of which I do not necessarily agree with). So I'm wondering if you know of any recent evidence based journal articles about what the best way to treat this little girl's amblyopia. Would the simple refractive correction suffice? Please include a journal article to support your answers.
