    I have the following problems (after being tested by orthoptist):
    - accommodative excess (or spasm of accommodation)
    - intermittent exophoria
    - pseudomyopia of over one diopter in exophorix eye

    I may also have convergence insufficiency, is this possible?

    Would the prescription of base-in prism help to alleviate eystrain
    (mainly associated with close work)?

    What is the most effective way of reducing the pseudomyopia in the
    exotropic eye?

    Yes, sorry intermittent exotropia. Is there a difference between
    exotropia and exophoria?
    Yes, the exotropic eye. Only one of my eyes squints, as far as I know
    but both have pseudomyopia, the exotropic one more than the normal
