why wouldn't one eye converge doing a "convergence" test?

  1. 0 If you were acessing convergence in a patient and one eye didn't converge what does that mean?

    Some degree of amblyopia, probably. What you are noting is a degree of strabismus. It's usually due to a weakness in the muscles of the eye. I suppose it could also be due to nerve damage to the particular muscle involved.

    I guess I should have noted both eyes initially converged, but then the right one shot back out and the left stayed in place.
