Can A Lazy Eye Be Corrected Cosmetically If I Am 40 Years Old
40 years old guy, one of my eye is as doctors say lazy eye, radial keratotomy done 15 years back, the vision of this eye is 8.5 cyl. Suggest treatmnt?
Second opinion: A lazy eye is one which while apparently normal, does not see well usually from childhood issues. If not the case, then there is some other problem. Radial k. Have a high rate of regression which might be part of the cause. I suggest you make an appointment with a corneal surgeon to have this evaluated and get a second opinion there. ...Read more
Rx May help: Ambliopia is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision. It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unfortunately not: Lazy eye begins at birth (or before!) and must be treated aggressively before the age of 7 or so in order to have the greatest chance of it resolving. After the age of 7 the benefits of therapy drop precipitously as the brain becomes "used to" the eye being as it is. Neither natural or surgical/medical treatments are very effective by age 17. See a doctor to discuss your options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 31 years old and have a lazy eye. Is there any new findings offer hope for treating lazy eye?
Define "lazy eye": Most use the term for vision loss from one eye but some do for an eye that is not in alignment. Surgery can help with an alignment problem in kids and adults.

Adults with long term amblyopia have permanent loss, even if surgery can lined up the eyes correctly. ...Read more

An optometrist told me I have a lazy eye and that no glasses would fix it much. I'm 20 years of age. Is there any way to fix its vision?
Turning off vision: The brain utilizes the input of both eyes to aid in depth perception/distance etc. As a child grows, their eyes may have different strength, or weakness in an eye muscle may allow one to line up wrong. The fuzzy or double vision confuses the brain. Over time the brain may turn off the input of one eye & keep the best. That process is called amblyopia. If caught early it can be fixed, if late, not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, i have a lazy eye(right) and my age is 24. i have minus 7 in right eye and other eye is 0.25 .i am wearing glasses for past 8 years.any help?
Amblyopia: You have such a huge difference in power between each eye that your brain in childhood chose your left eye and is ignoring the fine detail part of the right eye (the peripheral is normal). This, unfortunately, is a permanent situation. The time to have brought up the vision in the right eye would have been patching in childhood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
