Reading Performance in Infantile Nystagmus – Corrected Proof

Objective: To characterize reading deficits in infantile nystagmus (IN), to determine optimal font sizes for reading in IN, and to investigate whether visual acuity (VA) and severity of nystagmus are good indicators of reading performance in IN. Design: Prospective cross-sectional study. Participants and Controls: Seventy-one participants with IN (37 idiopathic, 34 with albinism) and 20 age-matched controls. Methods: Reading performance was assessed using Radner reading charts and was compared with near logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (logMAR) VA, nystagmus intensity, and foveation characteristics as quantified using eye movement recordings. Main Outcome Measures: Reading acuity (smallest readable font size), (Read more...)
