Abstract

We report the cases of two patients aged 15 and 44 respectively, followed in our ophthalmology department B of the hospital specialties for ocular myasthenia. All patients under treatment are given an observation of ophthalmic examination taking visual acuity, consideration of annexes, the anterior segment and the bottom eye.
