Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye) - How to prevent?

Early detection and treatment of amblyopia is important when the part of the brain responsible for vision is still developing. Routine eye screenings are essential in prevention of amblyopia. Also, eye checks should be done early if a visual problem is suspected (e.g. if the child appears to have a squint or trouble seeing, or if there is obstruction of vision by droopy eyelids, cataract, etc.)

Delayed treatment is mostly unsuccessful and can lead to permanent poor vision.
