My blurry sight from a lazy eye gets better when i press down on my eyebrow. Why?

Check for glasses: Most likely you have a "refractive error" or need for glasses for that (or maybe both) eye(s).

Is it possible for a person to get a lazy eye after boxing for several years?

Is it possible for a person to get a lazy eye after boxing for several years?

But sometimes this is not enough, the retina may detach, the vision drops and the eye drifts out of alignment - which is the term for a "lazy eye". If you must box, protect your eyes. ...Read more
