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

My 7 years old son has got amblyopia or lazy eye (left).How can he get normal?

My 7 years old son has got amblyopia or lazy eye (left).How can he get normal?

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 more

Is it possible for a person to get a lazy eye after boxing for several years?

Is it possible for a person to get a lazy eye after boxing for several years?

Yes: Boxing causes repeated trauma to the eye which usually withstands this due to a structure called the vitreous gel which holds things in place (mostly the retina). But sometimes this is not enough, the retina may detach, the vision drops and the eye drifts out of alignment - which is the term for a "lazy eye". If you must box, protect your eyes. ...Read more

I am 26 years old and I have a lazy eye which I hate. Will a eye operation fix this.?

I am 26 years old and I have a lazy eye which I hate. Will a eye operation fix this.?

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

I am turning 21 and I am just suspecting I have lazy eye (left eye) for the past 10 years w/o knowing. How should I train myself to use both eyes tgt?

You can't: Amblyopia or "lazy eye" occurs when the brain decides to turn off the input of an eye that presents a different, weaker or out of alignment image. If caught early and the distortion corrected, vision can be retained. After many years, surgery might help with poor alignment, but the vision cannot be turned back on after the brain left it off for too long. ...Read more

Alignment: You appear to be discussing how your eyes line up. Once you get lazy eye (we call it amblyopia) as an adult it stays that way. To stay lined up after eye muscle surgery it would help to have good vision to keep your eye lined up. If your eye is weak on that side it may drift again because it does not hold or track on an the same object your other eye does. ...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 more

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 more
