Amblyopia or lazy eye

Eye laziness is a pathological condition that is recommended to be dealt with in childhood, as it leads to a defect in one eye or the other.

In some cases, lazy eye or amblyopia may lead to vision loss. Early diagnosis of the condition may lead to avoiding aggravation for a person's life. Therefore, we always recommend that you take caution and review the specialized doctors periodically.

What is lazy eye or amblyopia?

Laziness of the eye is a condition that develops during early childhood, causing a defect in the child's vision development. This imbalance leads to a lack of stimulation of the neural pathways between the brain and the eye, which leads to a low level of vision. Lazy eye is classified as a common disease that affects children.

Laziness of the eye may result from other diseases, including:

  • Strabismus

  • Optical defects

  • Anisometropia

  • Cataracts

Symptoms of a possible lazy eye may appear in the form of:

  • strabismus in the eyes

  • Difficulty looking at things, closing the eyes, and tilting the head to see better

  • Problems in realizing the depth of the environment and objects surrounding the child

  • Ptosis (Droopy upper Eyelid)

When should you see a specialist doctor?

It is important to detect eye laziness early and avoid worsening the health condition. Treatment is most effective if a child is diagnosed with lazy eye before the age of 6. It can be difficult to recognize the symptoms of lazy eye, so it's important to make sure you get regular medical check-ups.
