The binocular functions of a group of 60 patients with unilateral aphakia were tested after fitting with a contact lens. Results showed a high degree of extramacular fusion in the group. However, only 50% of these patients obtained satisfactory stereoacuity levels. There was no relation between the time elapsed from cataract extraction to contact lens fitting and the amount of ultimate stereoacuity obtained. Some factors presenting common obstacles to successful fitting of aphakic contact lenses are discussed.
