Can you tell me is there a way to make a lazy eye normal?

Can you tell me is there a way to make a lazy eye normal?

Yes but not at your: Age. The sooner the treatment starts the better the results. If completely treated by age 4 ; eyes are straight then you develop 3d vision ; may become completely normal. 4-9 years of age is still golden for treatment of amblyopia.

Help! need to know if there's a way to make a lazy eye normal?

Depends on variables: Amblyopia (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 (adults or kids over 8), normal function is unlikely with any treatment. ...Read more

Wondering if it's normal to have trouble seeing out my lazy eye?

Wondering if it's normal to have trouble seeing out my lazy eye?

Usually: A drifting eye is one that most likely does not see well and has not done so since childhood. Since it does not have good vision to keep it in alignment with the normal other eye, it will drift at times and in some all of the time. It is common to have this discovered at a later age than childhood if the condition was not discovered below age 8 when it might have been remedied. ...Read more

Rx May help: Ambliopia 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

Define "lazy eye": Some use this for eyes that don't line up while for others use it for a vision loss condition called amblyopia.Poor alignment is just one factor that can cause amblyopia.

What should I do other then a possible operation to fix a slight lazy eye?

Confusing question: Lazy eye is a lay term for a medical issue called amblyopia, where the brain turns off the input of an eye that gives a blurry or double vision input. Sometimes a eye doc can blur the stronger eye with glasses and turn the eye back on and sometimes surgery will bring the image into line and the eye and save the vision. Talk with your eye doc about your options. ...Read more
