Am i in danger to go blind in both eyes if I have a lazy eye?

Am i in danger to go blind in both eyes if I have a lazy eye?

No: While you can see with both eyes, your brain does not like double vision that comes from an eye that is 'lazy' --- left untreated your brain will 'prefer' the good eye and ignore the images coming from the lazy eye. There are eye exercises to strengthen the lazy eye or even surgery that can help. ...Read more
