Amblyopia

Amblyopia, also known as ‘lazy eye’, is a condition in which the brain fails to process information and data from one eye. Over time, the other eye is favored. This can result in loss of visual acuity in an eye that is otherwise normal.

The term ‘Lazy Eye’ is commonly known because the ‘stronger’ eye is favored. However, amblyopia is not caused due to an eye being lazy but instigated due to underdevelopment off the eye.

The onset of amblyopia starts in childhood and is the most common cause of vision loss in children. It can be prevented with early treatment.
