How do you fix 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.
It depends. Lazy eye, or amblyopia, refers to poor development of the relationship of the brain with one or both eyes. It can be associated with a misaligned eye, a droopy lid, a problem in the lens or cornea, or just refractive error. The treatment depends on the cause, which can involve glasses, patching, eyedrops, or surgery. See a pediatric ophthalmologist to determine.
