Is There A Way To Fix A Lazy Eye Naturally If I Am 17 Years Old
Hello doctor I have amblyopia in left eye i am 17 year old. is it curable. if not any suggestions on how to proceed?
Some hope: Amblyopia is a lack of visual development from one or both eyes. The eye itself may be healthy, but if a clear image from the eye is not received by the brain by age 6-10, it may never see clearly. Usually treatment is by patching the good eye to force the amblyopic eye to work. There are some new developments for older people, but first get an eye exam to evaluate the eye's health and potential. ...Read more

I am 31 years old and have a lazy eye. Is there any new findings offer hope for treating lazy eye?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Define "lazy eye": Most use the term for vision loss from one eye but some do for an eye that is not in alignment. Surgery can help with an alignment problem in kids and adults. The lazy eye (amblyopia) of vision loss can be helped if caught early. This is the brain turning off an eye with confusing input. Adults with long term amblyopia have permanent loss, even if surgery can lined up the eyes correctly. ...Read more
40 years old guy, one of my eye is as doctors say lazy eye, radial keratotomy done 15 years back, the vision of this eye is 8.5 cyl. Suggest treatmnt?
Second opinion: A lazy eye is one which while apparently normal, does not see well usually from childhood issues. If not the case, then there is some other problem. Radial k. Have a high rate of regression which might be part of the cause. I suggest you make an appointment with a corneal surgeon to have this evaluated and get a second opinion there. ...Read more

I am 17 years old. I have severe headache on right side and also my eyes remain watery and are always itchy. Are these the symptoms of weak eyesight?
Itchy/Watery Eyes: The symptoms you are describing are more likely related to allergic conjunctivitis rather than poor eyesight. While poor eyesight and eye strain can cause headaches, this would not be associated with itchy, watery eyes. Headache could be associated with increased sinus pressure and poorly controlled rhinitis symptoms. See primary doctor or allergist for further treatment and evaluation. ...Read more

This problem requires direct examination. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, i have a lazy eye(right) and my age is 24. i have minus 7 in right eye and other eye is 0.25 .i am wearing glasses for past 8 years.any help?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
