Amblyopia / Lazy Eye

Amblyopia, also called lazy eye, is reduced vision (usually in one eye) that is not due to any structural abnormality or eye disease and is not correctable by glasses or contact lens. About 2-5% of children have amblyopia, and treatment involves forcing the child to use the lazy eye.

1. Which specialist should I see if I am suffering from Amblyopia?

You should consult an Ophthalmologist.

2. When should treatment for amblyopia begin?

The earlier the treatment, the better the opportunity to reverse the vision loss.

3. What happens if amblyopia goes untreated?

If not treated early enough, an amblyopic eye may never develop good vision and may even become functionally blind.

4. When Should Vision Be Tested?

A child's eyes are examined at birth and periodically during the first year of life by his/her doctor. It is recommended that all children have their vision checked by their opthalmologist at or before their fourth birthday.
