Can you prevent development of a lazy eye?

Can you prevent development of a lazy eye?

Absolutely: "lazy eye" is a somewhat derogatory layman's term for what I prefer to call by it's real name - amblyopia, or when the brain and eyes don't work well together. This is caused when the image reaching the back of the eye is not focused or when the eyes are not aligned. Symptoms include a poor judge of depth, one eye turning inwards or outwards, or the eyes not working together. ...Read more

Standard care: If the brain receives 2 different images from the eyes, it will eventually turn off the fuzzier or misdirected image to end brain confusion. Over time this can mean permanent vision loss in that eye, also called amblyopia. Once the vision is turned off the eye may begin to drift, causing a misalignment. Get a 2nd opinion if you need to, but this is important. ...Read more

I have a lazy eye, I was born cross-eyed and had surgery. When I was in college, I noticed that my left eye was going in a different direction. Is there anyway I can prevent the right eye from becoming lazy?

I have a lazy eye, I was born cross-eyed and had surgery. When I was in college, I noticed that my left eye was going in a different direction. Is there anyway I can prevent the right eye from becoming lazy?

Which eye had: surgery? If it was your 'lazy left eye' and now it's going in a different direction, it may be from studying and not resting at all hours of the night, fatigue. You do need to see your eye doctor for definitive diagnosis! If your right eye is dominant, and not moving funny, chances are high it won't move and become lazy! So, see your eye doctor, and have this evaluated further to discuss options. ...Read more

I'm 18 and I wasn't born with lazy eye but I've been noticing in pictures that I have a bad lazy eye?

Your question??: If you are refering to lining the eyes up so they point in the same direction, that might be possible with a skilled eye muscle surgery. The other issue is will it work. If the brain decided to shut off the input from that eye (ambliopia), the ability to regain that lost input deminishes with time. A discussion with your eye dr can give you guidance. ...Read more

My daughter has pseudostrabismus. Can it convert to strabismus? Can I prevent it somehow? How often do I take her for eye checkup? Thanks..

My daughter has pseudostrabismus. Can it convert to strabismus? Can I prevent it somehow? How often do I take her for eye checkup? Thanks..

No: Pseudostrabismus is just the appearance that the eyes are not aligned correctly, when in reality they are. Usually it looks that way because of the skin folds around the eye being a little different one side to the other, and so the eyes just look out of line. If an eye doctor has examined and told you the alignment is fine, then it is. It won't 'convert' to strabismus, because there is no problem. ...Read more

But mostly the vision is down because of refractive or positional problems in which the brain makes a choice to ignore one eye. ...Read more
