Amblyopia: Diagnosis and
Best Way of Treatment

“Enough with your video games”; “Stop the cartoon videos right away”; “Switch off and put away the mobile.” You perhaps are pretty familiar with these phrases! You are after your child the entire day, uttering these commands repeatedly. With so much technology and screen time coming into our children’s lives, we constantly remain worried about their eye health. Pain, dryness, or tiredness in their eyes are common phenomena we keep coming across.

 

The above issues certainly need attention, but whatever we are going to discuss here is a bit more sensitive. It can grow serious and might be there with your child since birth. The condition that we are talking about is Amblyopia.

 

Amblyopia or Lazy Eye occurs when nerve pathways lack coordination between the brain and the eyes. This happens because of poor eye muscle control. So, if your child has a wandering eye or eyes that do not work together like a normal pair of eyes, the child may be suffering from Amblyopia. Either of the eyes or both can be affected by having a compromised level of depth perception.

Typical symptoms of Amblyopia (Lazy Eye):

  • Blurry vision
  • Eyes that do not work together or lack synchronization
  • Double vision
  • Shutting an eye or Squinting as we may call it
  • One eye turning upward, inward, outward, or downward
  • Leaning head on one side

Diagnosis

Your child may undergo some eye tests between the age of 3 to 6. If the optometrist suspects Amblyopia, he will prefer to run a few more tests. He may check each eye individually for near and farsightedness and see if there is an eye turn. Only then will he tell you the severity and what next steps you should be taking.

When to call the doctor

If you see your child finding it difficult to concentrate while looking at an object;

  • One of the eyes or both turn away (up, down, in or out);
  • Your child is unable to use both his/her eyes at a time
  • Also, if you have a family history of a lazy eye, cataract, or other critical eye problems.

If you see these problems during your child’s early days of growth, speak to a pediatrician without fail.

Treatment

Covering the strong eye: This method is known as Patching. Here, the stronger eye is covered so that, the weaker eye is forced to focus, thus reinforcing the weaker one to get better at vision naturally.

 

Contact lenses or glasses: Continuous usage of lenses or glasses can eliminate the differences between the eyes and align vision over a while.

 

Surgery: A small operation can rectify and realign the muscles of the eyes restoring normal vision ability.

 

All the above ways you see are either long-term, non-complaint, expensive, or quite risky. No one wants their child to suffer for long. Nothing is better than encountering a speedy, effective recovery and seeing your child leading a normal life.
