What is Amblyopia?
Amblyopia, sometimes called “lazy eye” is decreased vision in one or both eyes. With amblyopia, there may not be an obvious problem with the eye. Vision loss occurs because nerve pathways between the brain and the eye aren’t properly stimulated. The brain favors one eye, and ignores the other.

Benefits of Strabismus Treatment
Strabismus in adults is treatable and can be highly beneficial. For example, patients feel more comfortable in social settings because they feel less self-conscious about their eye turn. Patients also find they can make decisions more easily because they’re able to use both sides of their brain both easily and efficiently.
