A 24-year-old member asked:

Does lazy eye lead to irreversible vision loss?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. David Kira
Ophthalmology 21 years experience
It can!: The vast majority of visual development is complete by age 7 or 8. Some improvement in vision may be attained at ages up to 18 or so but the gains are modest. It's best to begin treatment as early as possible to prevent irreversible vision loss.

Sometimes: Prisms can be used in glasses if the double vision/lazy eye is small to correct things without surgery. If the defect is to large, prisms are not a realistic option.

Does anyone know if vitamin d deficiency will make your eyes blurry and have double vision?

Vitamin D and Eyes: There are few clear links between vitamin d deficiency and eye disease. An old report once discussed a potential link between age-related macular degeneration and vitamin d, but the recent areds and areds2 studies do not focus on this nutrient. Instead, there is greater emphasis on vitamins c, e, and zinc, as well as beta-carotene and lutein. Some people who lack vitamin d also lack vitamin a.
