Table 2 Change in total Newcastle Control Score by treatment group

From: The improving outcomes in intermittent exotropia study: outcomes at 2 years after diagnosis in an observational cohort

  Treatment within 2 years:
  Observation
n = 191
Vision only
n = 63
Non-surgical treatment
n = 48
Surgery
n = 62
Improved by ≥3; n (%) 19 (10) 5 (8) 7 (15) 26 (42)
Stable; n (%) 163 (85) 53 (84) 39 (81) 21 (34)
Deteriorated by ≥3; n (%) 9 (5) 5 (8) 2 (4) 2 (3)
Overcorrected n (%) - - - 13 (21)
  1. The home control component score was missing for 1 patient at enrolment and outcome NCS were missing for one surgery and 5 non-surgery patients because the home control component was not completed. (For the child who had surgery, no detectable squint was seen in the clinic.) Difference between groups in proportions improved/stable/deteriorated: chi-square 58.9, p < 0.001.
