P214 Purpose To determine visual acuity improvement throught staircase method in children with moderate amblyopia comparing Bangerter filters and patching Methods Randomized, clinical trial: 128 children, 4 to 7 years old, with moderate amblyopia. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either daily patching or to use a Bangerter filter on the spectacle lens. Patients were examined at 1, 3, 6, 12 and 18 months. BCVA has been evaluated with staircase method with logMAR acuity readings Results At 18 months, all the amblyopic eye improved visual acuity similar to the patching group but in the Bangerter group there was a lower treatment burden and a better compliance for the subjects Conclusion Staircase method allows a better accuracy in the follow-up of visual defect. During the follow-up there are some differences in the timing of the two groups but, after 18 months, visual acuity improvement throught Bangerter filters and patching is similar. One advantage of Bangerter filters is that there is no opportunity for skin irritation from bandage adhesive, a commonly-reported side effect of patching.

P214 Purpose To determine visual acuity improvement throught staircase method in children with moderate amblyopia comparing Bangerter filters and patching Methods Randomized, clinical trial: 128 children, 4 to 7 years old, with moderate amblyopia. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either daily patching or to use a Bangerter filter on the spectacle lens. Patients were examined at 1, 3, 6, 12 and 18 months. BCVA has been evaluated with staircase method with logMAR acuity readings Results At 18 months, all the amblyopic eye improved visual acuity similar to the patching group but in the Bangerter group there was a lower treatment burden and a better compliance for the subjects Conclusion Staircase method allows a better accuracy in the follow-up of visual defect. During the follow-up there are some differences in the timing of the two groups but, after 18 months, visual acuity improvement throught Bangerter filters and patching is similar. One advantage of Bangerter filters is that there is no opportunity for skin irritation from bandage adhesive, a commonly-reported side effect of patching.
