The medical name for lazy eye is amblyopia. It is a vision condition where actual vision in one of the eyes becomes weaker due to the fact that the eye and the brain are not working together. If one eye is stronger than the other, the brain may learn to ignore visual symptoms from the weaker eye, and this can cause vision loss. Amblyopia is generally found in patients during childhood, and is the most common condition of vision loss in children. In fact, amblyopia affects between two and three out of every 100 children. Amblyopia usually develops early in life while the visual system is developing. It is important that this condition is treated in early childhood; if amblyopia is allowed to continue into adulthood, it can cause serious visual impairment, also making it extremely difficult to have proper depth perception. Amblyopia can be caused by different eye conditions that affect the development of the eye. A common cause of amblyopia is strabismus. When a patient has strabismus, the eyes can turn in or turn out. This condition is often referred to as lazy eye. Strabismus can run in families. Symptoms of amblyopia can include eyes that turn in our out, eyes that do not appear to be working together, for depth perception, or poor vision in one eye. Amblyopia and strabismus can be diagnosed during a complete eye exam at our office.
