Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

During childhood, when vision is reduced in one eye, the brain sometimes favors the other eye. This condition, called amblyopia, may stem from a misalignment of the eyes (strabismus or crossed eyes) or poorer vision in one eye. A patch or drops that blur the vision in the “good” eye can prod the brain to use the other eye. If untreated during childhood, vision loss from amblyopia can be permanent.
