What is the quickest in most affective way to fix a lazy eye if you are born with it and are trying to fix it at the age of 15?

See a pediatric...: If by lazy eye you mean that the eyes are not aligned then this is a very common problem that can and should be fixed by an experienced pediatric ophthalmologist. In most cases surgery will be required. Ask for a referral from your pediatrician. The results are usually quite good depending on the cause. If you mean an eye with poor vision, this is a different problem & harder at address at 15. ...Read more

Until what age can one wear a patch for my lazy eye?

Until what age can one wear a patch for my lazy eye?

Try it: At age 33, chances of success are less, but patching your stronger eye will not hurt anything. It used to be thought that amblyopia (lazy eye) could be corrected by patching until age 7. There have been many successes at later ages, but it becomes more difficult. If the lazy eye is deviated, crossing in or out, it will be good to try to strengthen it before surgical options are considered. ...Read more

Can the eye patch cure my lazy eye even though my age is 14 or is it too late and the patch is useless?

Can the eye patch cure my lazy eye even though my age is 14 or is it too late and the patch is useless?

Depends on situation: The brain uses both eyes equally giving depth perception & peripheral vision. If one eye is weaker or doesn't line up the image, the brain begins to ignore the input of the weaker eye.Patching the stronger eye makes the brain accept the weaker eye input allowing the connection to return to normal. You will only know if it works by trying it. It can help, even if pbm has gone on for a long time. ...Read more

Depends: 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 more

An optometrist told me I have a lazy eye and that no glasses would fix it much. I'm 20 years of age. Is there any way to fix its vision?

Turning off vision: The brain utilizes the input of both eyes to aid in depth perception/distance etc. As a child grows, their eyes may have different strength, or weakness in an eye muscle may allow one to line up wrong. The fuzzy or double vision confuses the brain. Over time the brain may turn off the input of one eye & keep the best. That process is called amblyopia. If caught early it can be fixed, if late, not. ...Read more

Amblyopia: You have such a huge difference in power between each eye that your brain in childhood chose your left eye and is ignoring the fine detail part of the right eye (the peripheral is normal). This, unfortunately, is a permanent situation. The time to have brought up the vision in the right eye would have been patching in childhood. ...Read more

Is it possible to fix a lazy eye? If so, how?

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
