Amblyopiaalso called lazy eyeis a disorder of sight due to the eye and brain not working well together. The cause of amblyopia can be any condition that interferes with focusing during early childhood. Early detection improves treatment success. Amblyopia begins by the age of five. Many people with amblyopia, especially those who only have a mild form, are not aware they have the condition until tested at older ages, since the vision in their stronger eye is normal.

People dee have poor stereo visionhowever, since it requires both eyes. Those with amblyopia further may have, on the affected eye, poor pattern recognition, poor visual acuityand low sensitivity to contrast and motion.

Amblyopia is characterized by several functional abnormalities in spatial vision, including reductions in visual acuitycontrast sensitivity function, and vernier acuityas well as spatial distortion, abnormal spatial interactions, and impaired contour detection.

In addition, individuals with amblyopia suffer from binocular abnormalities such as impaired stereoacuity stereoscopic acuity and abnormal binocular summation. However, subclinical deficits of the “better” eye have also been demonstrated. People with amblyopia also have problems of binocular vision such as limited stereoscopic depth perception and usually have difficulty seeing the three-dimensional images in hidden stereoscopic displays such as autostereograms.

Strabismus, sometimes also incorrectly called lazy eye, is a condition in which the eyes are misaligned. Children’s brains, however, are more neuroplasticso can more easily adapt by suppressing images from one of the eyes, eliminating the double vision. This plastic response of the brain, however, interrupts the definnicion normal development, resulting in the amblyopia.

Those with strabismic amblyopia amblopia to show ocular motion deficits when reading, even when they use the nonamblyopic eye. In particular, they tend to make more saccades per line than persons with normal stereo vision, and to have a reduced reading speedespecially when reading a text with small font size [18] [19].

Strabismic amblyopia is treated by clarifying the visual image with glasses, or encouraging use of the amblyopic eye with an eyepatch over the dominant eye or pharmacologic penalization of the better eye. Penalization usually consists of applying atropine drops to temporarily ambllopia the accommodation reflex, leading to the blurring of vision in the good eye.

It also dilates the pupil.

This helps to prevent the bullying and teasing associated with wearing a patch, although sometimes application of the eye drops is challenging. The ocular alignment itself may be treated with surgical or nonsurgical methods, depending on the type and severity of the strabismus.

Refractive amblyopia may result from anisometropia unequal refractive error between the two eyes. The eye which provides the brain with a clearer image typically becomes the dominant eye.


The image in the other eye is blurred, which results in abnormal development of one ambliolia of the visual system.

Refractive amblyopia is usually less severe than strabismic amblyopia and is commonly missed by ed care physicians because of its less dramatic appearance and lack of obvious physical manifestation, such as with strabismus. Also pediatric refractive surgery is a treatment option, in particular if conventional approaches have dde due to aniseikonia or lack of compliance or both. Frequently, amblyopia is associated with a combination of anisometropia and strabismus.

In some cases, the vision between the eyes can differ to the point where one eye has twice average vision while the other eye is completely blind. Deprivation amblyopia amblyopia ex anopsia results when the ocular media become opaquesuch as is the case with congenital cataract or corneal haziness. If not treated in a timely fashion, amblyopia may persist even after the cause of the opacity is removed. Sometimes, drooping of the eyelid ptosis or some other problem causes the upper eyelid to physically occlude a child’s vision, which may cause amblyopia quickly.

Occlusion amblyopia may be a complication of a hemangioma that blocks some or all of the eye.

Other possible causes of deprivation and occlusion amblyopia include obstruction in the vitreous and aphakia. Amblyopia is dee developmental problem in the brain, not any intrinsic, organic neurological problem in the eyeball although organic problems can lead to amblyopia which can continue to exist after the organic problem has resolved by medical intervention.

This has been confirmed by direct brain examination. Hubel and Torsten Wiesel won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in for their work in showing the extent of the damage to ocular dominance columns produced in kittens by sufficient visual deprivation during the so-called ” critical period “.

The maximum “critical period” in humans is from birth to two years old. Amblyopia is diagnosed by identifying low visual acuity in one or both eyes, out of proportion to the structural abnormality of the eye and excluding other visual disorders as causes for the lowered amblioppia acuity. It can be defined as an interocular difference of two lines or more in acuity e.

Stereotests like the Lang stereotest are not reliable exclusion tests for amblyopia.

A person who passes the Lang stereotest test is unlikely to have strabismic amblyopia, but could nonetheless have refractive or deprivational amblyopia. Diagnosis and treatment of amblyopia as early as possible is necessary to keep the vision loss to a minimum.

Screening for amblyopia is recommended in amblipoia people between three and five years of age. Treatment of strabismic or anisometropic amblyopia consists of correcting the optical deficit wearing the necessary spectacle prescription and often forcing use of the amblyopic eye, by patching the eefinicion eye, or instilling topical atropine in the good eye, or both.

Concerning patching versus atropine, a drawback is seen in using atropine; the drops can have a side effect of creating nodules in the eye which a correctional ointment can counteract. One should also be wary of overpatching or overpenalizing the good eye when treating amblyopia, as this can create so-called “reverse amblyopia”. Treatment is continued as long as vision improves.


It is not worthwhile continuing to patch for more than 6 months if no improvement continues. Deprivation amblyopia is treated by removing the opacity as soon as possible followed by patching or penalizing the good eye to encourage the use of the amblyopic eye. One of the German public health insurance providers, Barmer, has changed its policy to cover, as of 1 Aprilthe costs for an app for amblyopic children amblliopia condition has so far not improved through patching.

The app offers dedicated eye exercises which the patient performs while wearing an eyepatch. Tentative evidence shows that perceptual training may be beneficial in adults. A study, [44] widely reported in the popular press, [45] has suggested that repetitive transcranial magnetic ddefinicion may temporarily improve contrast sensitivity and spatial resolution in the affected eye of adults with amblyopia. This approach is still under development, [46] and the results amblioia verification by other researchers.

It has also been suggested that comparable results can be achieved using different types of brain stimulation [47] such as anodal transcranial direct current stimulation [48] and theta burst rTMS.

A study concluded that converging evidence indicates decorrelated binocular experience plays a pivotal role in the genesis of amblyopia and the associated residual deficits. A Cochrane review sought to determine the effectiveness of occlusion treatment on patients with sensory deprivation amblyopia, but no trials were found eligible to be included in amblioia review.
