What is Lazy Eye?

Lazy eye, also known as Amblyopia, occurs when the eye and the brain don’t work together properly. As a result, you may experience blurry vision, eyes that don't move at the same time, or a wandering eye. However, both eyes can also be affected by this condition. Since lazy eye cannot go away on its own, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. Your treatment will depend on your condition, however, out optometrist may recommend surgery if the case is severe.

Treatment for Lazy Eye

When you visit us, we will perform an eye exam to assess your eyes and determine the necessary treatment. Our eye doctor can prescribe eye drops, oral medication, patches to help the lazy eye become stronger, glasses, contact lenses, and even surgery. The treatment received will be according to the needs of the patient and the severity of the condition. Sometimes, an eye patch placed on the stronger eye can help the weak or lazy eye becoming stronger, while eyeglasses or contacts can improve vision.
