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 there be any cure for lazy eye/squint?

Can there be any cure for lazy eye/squint?

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.

Can you tell me how I could cure lazy eye?

Can you tell me how I could cure lazy eye?

Time for a visit: You need to visit an ophthalmologist and have a basic assessment done. You will need to clarify the issue. Some consider poorly a poorly aligned eye, "lazy" while it is better used for visual loss from one eye. Eye surgery may help re-align the eyes, but long term vision loss is usually permanent. Only a proper evaluation could be sure. ...Read more

Any possibilities are there to cure my lazy eye?

Appears so: I did some research on this as I'm used to my younger patients being treated with patching. It appears there may be some treatment options for adults. The link I am sending is not encouraging Tetris :) but the rest of the article was interesting and may be worth sharing with your MD to see if treatment options are available to you. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/tetris-may-help-treat-lazy-eye-in-adults/ ...Read more

Are there any natural cures for lazy eye?

Are there any natural cures for lazy eye?

Depends: First be certain that it really is a 'lazy' eye and not another reason for abnormal eye movements. I have seen some improvement in patients sent to optometrists for certain types of graded exercises and a couple of miraculous changes with people treated with acupuncture, most specifically auricular therapy, but my comments are from personal experience, not medical literature. ...Read more
