Lazy Eye / Amblyopia

What is Lazy Eye?

A lazy eye or amblyopia occurs when the sight of one or both eyes is under-developed, causing reduced vision.

What causes the condition?

A squint is the most common reason for one eye to be amblyopic, but it can also occur when one eye is more long- or short-sighted than the other.
