Is it possible to fix my lazy eye when I already had surgery on it before?

Possible: It depends on whether you are asking about the lazy "vision" or lazy "position" of the eye. Lazy position can be addressed based on extent of squint and available muscle tissue. Lazy vision (amblyopia) can be addressed using appropriate refractive surgery (you may not have 20/20 capacity but at least to the best vision you have with your glasses). You may need your eye doctor to review this with. ...Read more

What can you do to fix my lazy eye?

What can you do to fix my lazy eye?

Depends: It depends what the lazy eye is from. If it is due to crossing or drifting, you can correct it back to a normal position, but if it has been present since birth, the vision may or may not improve.

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.

How do I fix my lazy eye when I already had surgery?

Depends: Lazy eye is a vague term. If you mean droopy lid, this is ptosis which would likely need surgery to be corrected. If you are referring to misalignment of the eyes this is strabismus. This is treated with glasses, exercises, surgery or patching (children only). If you are referring to poor vision in 1 eye (amblyopia) then glasses or patching may help but usually only in kids. See your eye doc. ...Read more

Do you think I should I get a surgery to fix my lazy eye?

Do you think I should I get a surgery to fix my lazy eye?

Not at your age: A Lazy eye" amblyopia is usually caused by a refractive error that is not discovered before age 2. The brain will "turn off" the image coming from the blurry (usually far-sighted) eye and concentrate and show preference to the good eye. The amblyopic eye then does not develop the visual pathways to the brain required for good vision. Patching the good eye can improve vision in a child. ...Read more
