Definition of Lazy Eye:
Lazy eye is a type of eye disorder in which reduced vision occurs in a seemingly healthy eye. In this condition, although the eye structure is normal, even wearing glasses do not help to correct the vision back to normal. When the vision development is normal in one eye, but abnormal in another eye, the eye whose sight has failed to develop will have a reduced vision and gradually becomes lazy. About 2 to 3 percent of children suffer from lazy eye, and the best time to correct this disorder is at infancy or early childhood. It should be noted that though only one eye is usually involved, in some cases, amblyopia can occur in both eyes at the same time. Tehran Noor Eye Hospital in Iran offers advanced treatments for lazy eye.
