Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Amblyopia is a visual disorder in which an eye fails to develop normal visual acuity. The condition usually results from poor eye co-ordination, from having a turned eye, or from having one eye which requires a far greater spectacle prescription than the other.

When detected early enough, patching, vision training and lenses may help to improve the vision in an amblyopic eye. Amblyopia due to a turned eye sometimes requires surgery to improve eye alignment.
