                                                       Amblyopia

Amblyopia is the medical term used when the vision in one eye is reduced because it fails to communicate properly with the brain. In our office, it is viewed as a disturbance of binocular vision, which in many cases can be restored. Symptoms of amblyopia include, but may not be limited to, poorer vision in one eye, impaired depth perception, reduced sensitivity to contrast (affecting night vision, or tiring more easily when reading or watching television) and reduced fields involved with peripheral vision and keeping up with motion (required for sports or physical fitness).

Prevalence of Amblyopia
Amblyopia affects approximately 2 to 3 children of every 100. Unless it is treated early, problems will persist into adulthood¹.
