What is Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)?

Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is a condition present in childhood. A lazy eye occurs when the brain disregards blurry images coming from an underdeveloped eye. Unlike other eye conditions, lazy eyes cannot be corrected with lenses. The weaker eye must be strengthened by having patching or covering the dominant eye. Although the effects may not be obvious, if left untreated, vision will not develop properly in the lazy eye.

If you suspect that you child may have a lazy eye, call today and book an appointment with Jas or the staff at Ideal Optical at 905-507-9752 or book your appointment online. You can also reach us at info@idealoptical.com.

Catching the problem early can save a child’s eyes!
