Astigmatism And Amblyopia
I have hypermetropic astigmatism with amblyopia in my left eye. Will I be able to watch a 3d movie?
Eye exam: Astigmatism can be checked for during a refraction. Also can be visualized with corneal topography (regular and irregular astigmatism). If the astigmatism was large and uncorrected making one eye weak while the other was strong during visual development, then a lazy eye can happen. Sometimes the lazy eye can drift if not staying focused. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 5 y/o niece is very shortsighted with 1 eye worse than the other + astigmatism on both. Should she have eye surgery now or wait until she's older?
Confusing question: The primary treatment of unequal eye power is through glasses, not surgery. If the child is developing amblyopia, (vision loss in the weaker eye), glasses and/or patching would still be the 1st effort. If the eyes did not line up correctly, patching might help first, but delicate eye muscle surgery may be needed. ...Read more
Do wearing of glasses to correct astigmatism at the age of 3yrs also helps to stimulate the eye development(getting cornea round) faster in kids ?
Glasses don't change: Wearing glasses refocuses the eyes do that the brains gets a clear image. This helps prevent amblyopia (lazy eye) in children.

The biggest reason to wear glasses is to ensure normal vision development (prevent amblyopia). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have astigmatism and im 19 years old and have weak eye sight since I was 13 years.Is laser surgery possible?
Possible: Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism can all be treated with laser vision correction (lasik, prk, lasek). The important question to answer is: how well can your eye see with contacts or glasses? Lasik can allow you to see without glasses what you did with your best lenses. If you had weak vision even with lenses, lasik will not improve it. A lasik doctor can let you know for sure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
