That Blurry Vision Could be Lazy Eye

That Blurry Vision Could be Lazy Eye

If your child is experiencing signs of blurry vision or lack of depth perception, they might be suffering from Amblyopia, or “lazy eye”.   Lazy eye means that one eye does not see as clearly as the other, even with glasses or contact lenses, and sometimes may involve a crossing or turning of the eyes.  This type of eye condition is not completely treatable with eyeglasses or contact lenses and often requires vision therapy.

Vision Therapy Is A Successful Treatment Option For Lazy Eye

Vision Therapy for Amblyopia involves special vision training for the eyes, medically proven to be an effective form of treatment.  After a preliminary evaluation at The Family Vision Development Center, Dr. Martin will determine the appropriate therapy program designed to treat your child’s specific vision needs.

Early Detection Is Best

Amblyopia is treatable at any age, from infant to adult.  However, the earlier a diagnosis is made and treatment started, the better the chance of favorable results from therapy.  That is why regular eye exams and communication with your optometrist is so important for early detection of a problem.  Contact Family Vision Development Center in Aurora at 630-862-2020 to schedule your appointment today.
