The . The most important thing is to have an exact diagnosis with your eye doctor. Lazy eye or the technical term (amblyopia) refers to a vision deficiency in an eye that appears physically within normal limits. Amblyopia can affect one or both eyes resulting in a decrease of best-corrected visual acuity that is out of proportion to any visible organic problem in the eye. The best response to treatment can be achieved when this condition is diagnosed in early childhood (preferably before one year of age). There are different types of amblyopia and therefore different treatments. There are different treatment modalities in early childhood including but not limited to prescription of exact glasses. Based on the medical knowledge at the time of this writing, treatment of amblyopia is generally ineffective during adult years.
