August 15, 2004

Los Angeles-"An assessment of ocular motility is a component of a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination. Therefore, it should be carried out even in the absence of complaints referable to the ocular motor system," said Howard R. Krauss, MD, clinical professor of ophthalmology, Jules Stein Eye Institute, and clinical professor of neurosurgery, UCLA, Los Angeles. "More detailed ocular motor tests can be performed when clinically indicated."
