Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Has your child been diagnosed with Amblyopia or Lazy Eye?

Does your child appear to have an eye that drifts in or out?

Is there a family history of someone who had eye surgery for a lazy eye?

Vision therapy is the best mode of treatment for Amlyopia or lazy Eye.Amblyopia is the number one reason a child loses sight. The earlier it is diagnosed and treated, the more likely it is that sight can be regained. Vision therapy for amblyopia consists of a series of logical eye exercises to teach the brain to “turn on” the vision in the affected eye.

Many people are surprised to learn that lazy eye is not a problem with the eye itself, but is instead, a problem with how the brain interprets the input from the eye to the brain. When caught early, the correct therapy produces excellent results.

Older methods of treating amblyopia include patching the non-amblyopic eye and sending the child to school. This method can be dangerous as the eye with the poor vision is being used for all activities. This may temporarily cause a decrease in a academics, as well as poor self-esteem.

When vision therapy is implemented, all patching is short-term and in a safe environment with fun activities appropriate to the vision level of the amblyopic eye.
