Four patients, presented with complaints of sudden onset blurring of vision and asthenopic symptoms with history of aggravation of symptoms with prolonged near work and under stressful conditions.Refraction was initially showing myopic refractive error.After cycloplegia,there was hypermetropic shift and VA was 20/20 for distance in all patients with their hyperopic correction,and N6 with upto +3.00 dioptres for near.Diagnosis of AS was made.Bifocal glasses were prescribed and atropinisation(1%) with avoidance of aggravating factors was started . Patients were tapered gradually to prevent recurrence over three months and were observed for six months in which none had reccurence.Post cycloplegia,the condition resolved and asthenopic symptoms were improved.
