Amblyopia


Amblyopia (lazy eye) is caused by various conditions which prevent the brain from using both eyes together. A lazy eye is an eye that experiences constant blurred vision that is not cleared with the appropriate spectacles or contact lenses.

The problem in this situation is not with the ability of the eyes to clear an image, but with the capacity of the brain to perceive this image as clear. The brain ‘suppresses or turns off’ the vision from the lazy eye because of some factor (blur from a refractive error or double vision from a squint) leading to an inability to fuse the images from the two eyes.

Children with lazy eyes are unable to use their eyes together well and thus have difficulty with depth perception and the appreciation of 3D.

  • Has your child been diagnosed with a lazy eye?
  • Do they need better fitting frames?
