COMMON VISION CONDITIONS,
ISSUES, AND DISEASES
AMBLYOPIA (LAZY EYE)
Amblyopia, or “lazy eye”, describes when one or both eyes fail to develop vision properly, and the eyesight in the weaker eye gets ignored by the brain. Lazy eye can be caused by one eye having a much stronger prescription than the other, or one eye being obstructed during development by another condition like a droopy eyelid.
Reflex testing and a refractive assessment can be used to diagnose amblyopia in our comprehensive eye exams. As with strabismus, some treatments can utilize our state-of-the-art lenses to improve the weaker eye.
