Lazy Eye (Amblyopia)

Lazy eye is known as diminshed vision that results from abnormal visual development in infancy and early childhood. 

In many cases, amblyopia may be hereditary, or passed down through the family. 

If lazy eye is a result of a condition such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, your optometrist will likely prescribe corrective glasses or contact lenses. Other alternative treatments may include eye patches, eyedrops or surgery.
