Is There A Way To Fix A Lazy Eye Naturally If I Am 17 Years Old
Unfortunately not: Lazy eye begins at birth (or before!) and must be treated aggressively before the age of 7 or so in order to have the greatest chance of it resolving.

Hello doctor I have amblyopia in left eye i am 17 year old. is it curable. if not any suggestions on how to proceed?

Adults with long term amblyopia have permanent loss, even if surgery can lined up the eyes correctly. ...Read more
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

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
