Q: WHAT IS AMBLYOPIA?
A: A condition that is also called “lazy eye”; amblyopia is a condition where vision in one or both eyes does not develop properly during childhood. Amblyopia is a common problem in babies and young children.
Because a child’s vision develops within the first few years of life, it is very important to diagnose and treat amblyopia as early as possible. If left untreated, a child with amblyopia will be unable to develop normal, healthy vision.
