Hello Virginia,

Amblyopia is a lazy eye condition where the brain and eyes are not connected properly, causing a general decrease in vision in one eye. Eyes that look poorly send false or blurred visual signals to the brain so the brain will respond by sending fewer signals to the blurry eye, over time the brain will ignore the signals from the blurry eye. Some of the triggers of lazy eyes include squinting, refractive eye problems, corneal sores, cataracts, and ptosis.

Lazy eyes are more common in children, but sequelae can persist into adulthood. Handling of lazy eyes is adjusted to the condition of the patient's eyes, can be by wearing glasses, eye patches, special eye drops, and surgery if there are cataracts or squints.

Regarding the use of eye patches, eye patches are used on healthy eyes to stimulate blurred eyes. Handling with a blindfold generally begins when given to children. If it starts after adulthood is less effective than if it was started in children. Blinkers can stick directly to the skin, can also stick to glasses.

If you feel symptoms of amblyopia, it would be better if you consult directly with an ophthalmologist so that further examination can be done and given more appropriate treatment.

Hope it helps you,

Thank you
