Lazy Eye

Lazy eye (Amblyopia) is poor vision in an eye that did not develop normal sight during early childhood. When one eye develops good vision while the other does not, the eye with poorer vision is called amblyopic. Usually only one eye is affected by lazy eye.

The condition is common, affecting approximately 2 or 3 out of every 100 people. The best time to correct lazy eye is during infancy or early childhood.

How does normal vision develop?

Newborn infants are able to see, but as they use their eyes during the first months of life, vision improves. During early childhood years, the visual system changes quickly and vision continues to develop.

If a child cannot use his or her eyes normally, vision does not develop properly and may even decrease. After the first nine years of life, the visual system is usually fully developed and usually cannot be changed.

The development of equal vision in both eyes is necessary for normal vision.

Many occupations are not open to people who have good vision in one eye only.
