The Right Treatment For Overcoming Lazy Eyes?
I am 19 years old and I have done OCT + OEM and others that the doctor sentenced me to have amblyophia / lazy eye in my left eye with a high level of minus eye and did not find suitable glasses other than that my left eyelid dropped and my left eye was somewhat a little squint but sometimes and not severe and also can not look up while the right is normal. Are there any good doctors or hospitals that can treat my left eye, thank you
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Amblyopia or lazy eye is a vision disorder in a person that causes the eye to not work according to signals from the brain so that the sufferer experiences decreased vision. This condition occurs due to nerve connections from one eye to the brain not formed properly so that the signals sent to the brain are wrong. Increasingly, the work of these two eyes is out of sync and the brain ignores signals from the bad eye. Lazy eye can be caused by squinting, refractive eye problems (eg nearsightedness, farsightedness, cylindrical eyes), cataracts in children, sores on the corneas, and drooping eyelids.
Treatment for lazy eye depends on the severity and impact on the patient's vision. Treatment that can be recommended by a doctor can be in the form of glasses, eye patches, tete smata drugs, or surgery. Please consult with your ophthalmologist. You can choose an eye hospital or eye clinic on this page, in the "search for hospitals" section then enter in the search box for the "eye" section. Don't hesitate to seek second opinions from other ophthalmologists if you have doubts.
Hopefully this information is useful.
