Could your child have a Lazy Eye?


Could some child you know have a lazy eye?

Children may have a lazy eye and you cannot see it and they may not know!

In our office we see children and adolescents and adults. We find that amblyopia/crossed/lazy eyes need to be detected by age 7.  This needs to be discovered so glasses and visual exercises may help prevent the need for surgery. Younger children with amblyopia respond better to treatment than do their older peers.  After examining data on some 996 children, researchers found that youngsters, again younger than seven had significantly greater improvements for both moderate and severe amblyopia/crossed/lazy eyes than did those seven to 13.  Among the younger children, there were no significant differences in response between those ages three to five and those in the five and seven group for either moderate or severe amblyopia.  In our office, we stress to all patients the eye health need for yearly eye exams irregardless of the need for visual correction to make sure they are not losing vision even if they don’t have visual complaints!   Dr. Warren Johnson/Dr. Burt Bodan ,
