Amblyopia (also called lazy eye) is a type of poor vision that almost happens in just one eye. It develops when there’s a breakdown in how the brain and the eye work together, and the brain can’t recognize the sight from one eye. Over time, the brain relies more and more on the other, stronger eye — while vision in the weaker eye gets worse.
What are the signs of lazy eye?
Amblyopia may be hard to detect until it becomes severe. Early warning signs include:
1- a tendency to bump into objects on one side
2- an eye that wanders inward or outward
3- eyes that appear not to work together
4- poor depth perception
5- double vision
