Amblyopia, or Lazy Eye

Amblyopia is often referred to as “Lazy Eye”. It is a condition where the affected eye does not see as clearly. It can be caused by an eye turn or a significant uncorrected eyeglass prescription. If one eye is turned or has the larger prescription, the brain will ignore this eye. Over time this leads to amblyopia or a weaker eye.

Strabismus, or Eye Turn

Strabismus is a condition where the two eyes do not aim in the same direction. One eye may be turned either in–commonly known as crossed eyes or out–commonly known as wall-eyed.

Focusing skills are typically learned and develop as the child grows. When it doesn’t develop properly it can cause a variety of problems.

Eye Teaming or Eye Coordination

Our eyes need to work together to give us single clear vision at all distances with all tasks. Eye Teaming is the ability to maintain a visual focus on an object with both eyes, creating a single visual image. This is the “normal” way the eyes work.
