Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
Amblyopia is also known as “lazy eye.” Amblyopia usually exhibits in infants and typically only affects one of the eyes.
About two to three percent of people in the United States suffer from some form of amblyopia.
As with most diseases, the earlier amblyopia is detected, the better. Because of this, it is really important to have your eyes checked on a regular basis.
One big sign of amblyopia is being crossed eyed. If you or your child is experiencing this, make sure that you book an appointment with your eye doctor right away. Another common symptom is being able to see properly only out of one eye.
