Amblyopia also called lazy eye is a disorder of sight due to that particular eye and the brain not working well together. It results in decreased vision in an eye that otherwise appears perfectly normal.
The outcome of amblyopia is better when it is treated in early childhood and detected early. It is very common in children and therefore it is important that children maintain regular comprehensive eye examinations.
Treatment of Amblyopia
There are many treatment options ranging from surgical for severe cases to non-surgical. Some non-surgical treatments options can include eye patching and wearing eye glasses.
