Prevalence of alcohol abuse, anxiety in children with strabismus

(January 27, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From China - A new report published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology finds an association between alcohol use, anxiety and depression among children presenting with strabismus. Researchers studied nearly 8,000 children aged 6-17 years, all of whom had their ocular alignment measured. 4000 children also took questionnaires examining their use of alcohol use, and anxiety and depression levels. Results showed that children with strabismus had significantly higher rates of alcohol use as well as emotion problems when compared to those without strabismus.
