Are Lazy Eyes The Same As Cylindrical Eyes?
Good night, I want to ask if the lazy eye is the same as the eye of the cylinder? And the lens that is suitable for the lazy eye, what type of lens is it ??? because I have been using glasses with a minus lens, following my left eye which happens to be a minus. And is the lens level the same as the minus eye ??? Thanks for the answer.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In short, the lazy eye is different from the cylinder eye. Lazy eye is a condition that in medical language is called amblyopia. Called lazy eye because in this condition, one eye is worse than the other, or the minus is much different from the other. As a result, the brain will only translate vision from the eyes better and ignore the vision of the disturbed eye. Thus, eyes that are disturbed because they are not used can become increasingly 'lazy', their ability to see becomes worse, and in some cases blindness can occur.
While cylindrical eyes, another name is astigmatism. Astigmatism is a condition where the surface of the eyeball is uneven, there are some parts that are curved so that the ability to see is different. You can imagine the bottom of the pan or the front of the shield as the surface of your eyeball, then imagine one of the parts being dented. The dented part of the minus can be higher than the other parts, that's why special glasses are needed where there is a special minus in the 'dented' part. The special glasses are cylindrical, which is why sufferers are called to have cylindrical eyes.
Back to the lazy eye condition, treatment will depend on the severity. Able to use special glasses, use eye patch, use special eye drops, to surgery. Regardless of what treatments are suitable for your condition, lazy eyes cannot be handled independently. So our advice should you check with your eye doctor to determine whether you really have lazy eyes or not and if so, what is the best treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
