Featured: Amblyopia Main Article

Amblyopia, or "lazy eye," is a childhood condition where one eye has poorer vision than the other. Amblyopia occurs when one eye has much better focus than the other eye. The condition is diagnosed by having an eye exam. Amblyopia may be treated with an eye patch, eye drops containing atropine, or surgery. Most cases of amblyopia resolve with early detection and treatment.
