Abstract

The aim of this study is to understand the vision being affected in individuals suffering from amblyopia.

Objective

By conducting a survey, we will understand the defects of amblyopia. A study on an individual will also be done.

Background

Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is a vision development disorder in which an eye fails to achieve normal visual acuity, even with prescription of lens or glasses. Amblyopia begins during infancy and early childhood. In most cases, only one eye is affected. But in some cases, reduced visual acuity can occur in both eyes. There are three types of amblyopiai) deprivation amblyopia, ii) strabismusamblyopia and iii) refractive amblyopia. Various treatment methods can be used to correct the defect. This syndromes is mostly found to occur in teenage children. It is mainly caused in conditions where the child has a blurry image and clear image image formed by the brain at the same time. This results in the child to accept the clear image and ignore the other. When such a condition is left for a long period of time it result in lazy eye.

Reason

Amblyopia is not a noticeable disorder but rarely considered as a discomfort. Amblyopia starts off as a minor vision difficulty but later manifests as a major eye disorder. The purpose of this article is to understand the level of attention people give to treating this disorder.
