Frequently Asked Questions

    One of my eyes is affected by amblyopia (lazy eye) , Can I undergo surgery?

    Yes, it is very probable that you can - we can improve vision in 8 out of 10 patients with amblyopia (lazy eye). Lazy eye or amblyopia means insufficient development of the retina as well as of superior brain centres that process the image. The development is complete at about 8 years of age and cannot be affected later. However, it is possible to affect the refractive defect that is almost always combined with amblyopia. Amblyopic eye will never be able to see as good as the other eye of yours. However, the seeing may improve by up to several lines of examination optotypes without using glasses. Non-laser surgery is often a better solution in the case of amblyopia combined with bad long-sightedness.
