I'm 30 and my ambiopia is due to presciption indifference. (rt eye, lt is fine) never had roaming or wandering eye. Is it possible I will later in life?

Possible: Depending on how poor the vision is in the amblyopic eye, it is possible that the poorly-seeing eye may "drift" outwards over many years. This certainly does not happen in all cases, but some do drift if the vision is very poor. It can be corrected with eye muscle surgery if the appearance is cosmetically unacceptable. See an eye md who does strabismus surgery for evaluation. ...Read more

Is it true that a wandering eye is a lazy eye?

Is it true that a wandering eye is a lazy eye?

Not necessarily: The short answer is no. An eye may drift out of alignment transiently as part of a nerve palsy or muscle weakness.If alignment is re-established (palsy resolves or surgery), vision may be retained. If alignment provides a blurry or double image for too long, the brain will turn of one image in favor of a clear picture. This turning off produces amblyopia (lazy eye), the wondering eye would be affected. ...Read more

Is it too late to fix my wandering eye or lazy eye? I am an adult.

Is it too late to fix my wandering eye or lazy eye? I am an adult.

Never too late: A wandering eye can usually be improved with strabismus surgery (working on the muscles of the eyeball) at any age. We would not expect your vision, if poor in the wandering eye and you are an adult, to improve at all. The eyes can usually be made to align better and "look" more normal to others. In adults, sometimes an adjustible suture is used. ...Read more

What can I do about a wandering eye?

See strabismologist: If the vision is good in the wandering eye, strabismus surgery (eye muscle surgery) may help. If the vision is poor in the wandering eye (amblyopia), then it is like a ship without an anchor, and may drift out wards or inwards after otherwise successful eye muscle surgery. Sometimes eye muscle exercises (vision therapy) may help, along with appropriate spectacle correction. ...Read more

Is it possible to have amblyopia without a wandering eye?

Is it possible to have amblyopia without a wandering eye?

Yes: The process of lining up the fixation point is part of visual development and brings the eyes into alignment. However if one eye presents a clearer image to the brain than the other, the brain may later decide to turn off the out of focus eye and thus create amblyopia. Misaligned eyes present a constant double image to the brain so one is turned off to have a clear image. The brain decides. ...Read more

Rapid onset adult amblyopia. Vision worsening, mostly due wandering eye that seems impossible to keep in tandem. Did patch method 4mo. No change. Causes?

Rapid onset adult amblyopia. Vision worsening, mostly due wandering eye that seems impossible to keep in tandem. Did patch method 4mo. No change. Causes?

Puzzling assumption: Vision worsening because of wandering eye is expected, but often the wondering is triggered by other eye or eye muscle issues. If alignment cannot be maintained the brain will deny input from one eye=amblyopia. Get the best evaluation by an ophthalmologist you can and hope for the best. ...Read more

Is it possible to have wandering eye in both?

Possibly: The most common 'wandering eye' is when vision is down in one eye and it cannot hold fixation and moves in or out compared to the other eye. There is a condition called alternation in which either eye can achieve fixation while the other snaps out or in. If there is poor vision in both eyes, they can wander in a random pattern termed nystagmus. ...Read more

Is it possible to fix a wandering eye as teen?

Do people with one wandering eye see where that eye is pointing? I can never tell.

Do people with one wandering eye see where that eye is pointing? I can never tell.

Usually not: Most eyes that move out of position develop what is termed supression in which the central vision is ignored by the brain which prevents the seeing of two images at a time. Along with this is a lack of awareness of the wandering eye's position. Most people with this problem are aware of it when they look in the mirror or someone tells them about it. ...Read more

How can violent outbursts be broken into either autistim vs the low IQ issues?

Autism vs low IQ: Most kids with autism are smart, which is obvious in the right context; they just don't tune into the world. Kids with low IQ have trouble learning; they are very tuned into the world, but have trouble understanding it. Both may engage in self-stimulating behaviors. Best assessment is by skilled interviewing and observation by pediatric pscyhiatrist. ...Read more
