Three children between the ages of 4 and 6 years had untreated monocular traumatic cataracts, for several years. Although amblyopia did not develop, there was a disruption of fusion that resulted in horror fusionis after cataract surgery. Two adults with strabismus and amblyopia since childhood developed cataracts as adults. The occlusion caused by these long-standing cataracts appeared to eliminate suppression and resulted in horror fusionis.
