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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rx May help: 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, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. ...Read more
Yes and no: Lazy eye, or amblyopia is a condition where the brain begins turning off one eye because the image is different/fuzzy. It may be improved by non-surgical means if the eyes line up correctly, but it often leads to cross eyes. Surgery can help re-align the eyes as part of treatment, but if the problem has gone on too long, the amblyopia can persist. At that point, surgery's value is cosmetic ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I am 24.I had one surgery to straighten my left lazy eye 4 years ago.Is it possible it becomes lazy again? Can I have surgery again if it will?
Yes: I'm not sure if you mean lazy (not seeing as well) or not aligned properly. If you have good vision and the eye is straight it likely will remain straight if there is no underlying vision loss. If this is a poorly sighted eye, it may turn again and can be operated on again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and no: 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
