Amblyopia

Commonly referred to a "lazy eye," amblyopia occurs when one eye has worse vision than the other, and the brain begins to favour the better eye. This will occur if one of the eyes is blocked from producing clear images during the critical years from ages 0 to 6. One eye may sbe inhibited by problems such as a lid droop, tumour, or crossed eyes (strabismus) that are not fixed when a child is young. It is crucial to have young children evaluated by an eye doctor in order to ensure that subtle signs of amblyopia are not present.
