Almond Shaped Eyes And Lazy Eyes
I have a lazy eye, which is misaligned. How can I align this eye with the other eye(it is looking a bit upwards, compared to the other)?
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
Can a sleepy eye/lazy eye (just one eye looking a bit more upwards) cause eyelids to be droopy, making you look tired? I'm 20 years old.

Doubtful both eyes: Amblyopia is a condition in which an eye which is otherwise normal, sees less well. It is almost always caused by some eye malposition or refractive differencies between the two eyes in infancy and early childhood. The pattern of amblyopia becomes fixed if not treated by age 8 years. After that, exercises, etc. Cannot correct the condition. You probably have one normal eye and one seeing less well. ...Read more
It can be: Many cases of amblyopia are due to differences in refraction between the eyes or grossly out of focus eyes. Sometimes, it is caused by farsightedness and a common complaint is variable focus. Getting a careful refraction for glasses can go a long ways towards comfort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glasses and exercise: If your vision is not clear and you need glasses, this may help the "lazy" eye remain straight. Sometimes, there needs to be a prism in your glasses to keep your eyes straight. There are some vision exercises that can help as well. Visit your local eye doctor for assistance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are exercises to treat lazy eye effective? I read that there are exercises you can do, like switching focus quickly from near to far and rolling your eyes, that will help amblyopia. Do these really work? If so, where can I get more information on how to d
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How when i look out my lazy eye alone it is quite blurry but when i open both my eyes i can see quite clearly?
Amblyopia: Your eye is "lazy" because it did not see as well when you were very young and has become lowered in vision although normal otherwise. We call that amblyopia. The vision from that eye alone will be less clear but with the other eye alone or the two together, things will look clear. ...Read more
Can you tell me if you have a lazy eye are your eyes symmetrical when you look at something or do you see more out of one eye?
Complex issue: The label "lazy eye" is commonly used for the condition amblyopia. This develops if the brain begins to "turn off" the visual input of an eye that provides distorted or poorly aligned (double image) input.The eyes can appear to be aligned normally or not.By definition, one eye is dominant, providing most or all of the visual information used by the brain. ...Read more
I am turning 21 and i am just suspecting i have lazy eye (left eye) for the past 10 years w/o knowing. how should i train myself to use both eyes tgt?
You can't: Amblyopia or "lazy eye" occurs when the brain decides to turn off the input of an eye that presents a different,weaker or out of alignment image. If caught early and the distortion corrected, vision can be retained.After many years,surgery might help with poor alignment, but the vision cannot be turned back on after the brain left it off for too long. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have lazy eye in both eyes and i can't control this (dont know when my eyes are doing it at all/ can't make them focus) what can I do to fix this ?:)
I went to the optician's today and they told me I have a micro lazy eye or something. But do glasses actually help your eyes?
Possible amblyopia: A "lazy eye" is layman's term for an eye which does not see as well or does not hold its position well and can sometimes drift in or out. Technically this is due to amblyopia - a lowering of vision when the eye is otherwise normal. These things are best diagnosed by ophthalmologists rather than opticians or optometrist and you should get such a second opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm seeing double vision out my lazy eye but is affecting both eyes but it only happens sometimes..Is this treatable?
Double vision: Need to see an ophthalmologist.Get a more detailed answer ›
Effectiveness : Patching the stronger eye can help keep the brain from turning off the input from the weaker eye.That process called amblyopia, takes place if eyes are misaligned causing double vision or one eye gives a blurry image.If the problem is not fixed by the time the visual system matures (6-8yr) it is unlikely to be helpful. ...Read more
Time for a visit: You need to visit an ophthalmologist and have a basic assessment done. You will need to clarify the issue. Some consider poorly a poorly aligned eye, "lazy" while it is better used for visual loss from one eye. Eye surgery may help re-align the eyes, but long term vision loss is usually permanent. Only a proper evaluation could be sure. ...Read more
