Anomalies of Accommodation and Convergence represent complex binocular vision dysfunctions that can manifest as significant visual disturbances. Accommodation pertains to the ocular mechanism that enables precise focus on proximal stimuli, whereas convergence describes the coordinated binocular movement allowing both eyes to fixate on a singular near point. Disruptions in these mechanisms can result in clinical presentations of diplopia, defocused imagery, ocular fatigue, cephalgia, and visual tension. Comprehensive assessment, accurate diagnosis, and targeted intervention are imperative to mitigate the potential visual impediments arising from these dysfunctions. As primary eye care providers, we, optometrists, are at the forefront of diagnosing and managing such conditions, ensuring a thorough evaluation of accommodation anomalies, latent heterophoria, vertical ocular misalignment, and convergence deficits, with a heightened vigilance post-neurotraumatic events.
