Amblyopia or "lazy eye" is a vision weakening caused by functional disorders of the visual analyzer.

Amblyopia develops alongside such diseases as strabismus, farsightedness, astigmatism, cataract and others. In ophthalmology amblyopia is considered to be one of the leading causes of the unilateral loss of vision. Amblyopia affects about 2% of the world population.

With this disease the eyes see different pictures, which does not allow the human brain to combine them into one. As a result, the performance of one eye is suppressed. People suffering from amblyopia do not have binocular vision ― the ability to collate two separate images into a single unit. This ability is necessary for evaluating the depth, volume and sequence of the objects in the field of view.

Different forms of amblyopia manifest themselves differently. With a low degree of severity an asymptomatic type of amblyopia is possible.

Children, given the lack of sensory experience, can not adequately assess how well they can see, and whether both of their eyes are equally involved. A young child might possibly have amblyopia if he/she also suffers from strabismus, nystagmus or the impossibility of fixing the sight on a bright object. In older children symptoms that indicate amblyopia include the reduction of visual acuity and lack of improvement from its correction, inability to orientate in an unfamiliar place, deviation of one eye to the side, the habit of closing one eye when looking at a subject or while reading, inclining or turning of the head when looking at a subject, problems with color perception and dark adaptation.

Visual impairment in amblyopia can range from mild visual acuity reduction to almost complete loss of it (light sensation) and impossibility of visual fixation. The prognosis for amblyopia depends on the causes of the disease and timing of its detection. The earlier the correction of amblyopia starts, the more successful the result is. The best effect is achieved in the treatment of children who are under 7 years of age, before the process of forming of the visual analyzer is completed. In the children older than 11-12 years of age amblyopia is practically non-curable.

In case of timely and complete treatment of amblyopia it is possible to almost fully normalize the vision.

Only the early, individually chosen and persistent treatment of amblyopia gives
