Do Glasses Or Contacts Help With A Lazy Eye
It depends: Contact lenses cannot be used for prism correction of strabismus. Glasses are the better choice for this. For lazy eye, in some cases contacts can work well to correct vision in the lazy eye. It depends on the cause of the lazy eye. See your local ophthalmologist for a thorough exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on the cause: If the lazy eye is turned one direction due to a prescription issue, glasses can straighten it. Prism placed in the glasses lenses can treat more resistant forms. Surgical alignment of the eye at a young age is a more permanent treatment. If the lazy eye is aligned but not able to see well, patching the other at a young age may help improve the vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on age: And underlying cause of the "lazy eye" if by "lazy eye" you mean an eye that is not straight, some types can be compensated with glasses at a young age. If "lazy eye" means an eye that never developed normally and has poor vision (amblyopia), then -- no-- no spectacle will fix it. ...Read more
Hi, For the past two days I've noticed that my lazy eye is very noticeable. Will wearing my glasses all the time fix this? Haven't worn them much
Depends: A 'lazy' eye is one with diminished vision compared to the other eye. There is a tendency for drift out of position with this; and this can increase with inattention and fatigue. Glasses can provide a cosmetic cover up and sometimes prisms can also help. The glasses will not fix the condition. If the drift is so great others notice it, then your ophthalmologist can straighten it. ...Read more
I m 19 yrs n have a lazy eye.It isn't deviated.Is there possibility of eye getting deviated in future?D lazy eye can't c well even using right glasses
Possible: Lazy eye, or amblyopia, describes an eye that cannot see well (typically more than 20/40) even with the best prescription lenses. It can be associated with a deviated eye. If the eye has never deviated, it is lees likely that it will as you get over, but there is always a slight possibility. If it was deviated as a child, there is a greater chance that it will deviate later in life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: Lazy eye responds best to treatment when detected at an early age. Our visual system is more flexible when we are young and we can -retrain your brain to use the lazy eye with the appropriate treatments and patient cooperation. At the age of 48, it is highly unlikely that your lazy eye is going to change much, even with the correct prescription ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My daughter has "lazy eye" if she does not wear her prescribed glasses can the condition worsten? Vanity
Things to ponder: The kid needs the truth & an understanding of the consequences of her behavior, as do you. Lazy eye, or amblyopia is where the brain decides to turn off the camera (eye) because it provides a fuzzy or double image. If she uses the glasses, it helps keep the camera on. If not, she could lose usable vision in that eye. Without vision it may also begin to point in the wrong direction (embarrassing) ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can a slight lazy eye(eye looking a bit more upwards)be properly repositioned with correctional glasses, or anything else with/without surgery? I'm 20
Perhaps but ?: If the misalignment dates from early childhood and you are not seeing double, then you have one eye with permanently lowered vision (termed amblyopia). I assume you are not seeing double - which would require an immediate evaluation. Your best bet is to see an ophthalmologist who specializes in 'strabismus' as vertical muscle imbalance is tricky to fix and requires a true expert. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe,maybe not: Ambliopia (lazy eye) 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 more
