How Vision Therapy helps Lazy Eye (Amblyopia)

Young Boy Sad Eyes 1280×853If your child has been diagnosed with amblyopia or ‘lazy eye’, vision therapy is hands down the most effective way to treat it.

You may have heard that placing a patch over one eye is an effective treatment, however that does not get to the root cause of the issue. Patching may result in short-term improvement, but will not reverse the symptoms in the long run.

Another common misconception is that one eye is weaker than the other, hence the term ‘lazy eye’. The eye isn’t ‘weaker’ the issue is that your binocular vision has been impaired from the amblyopic eye and has turned off. Vision Therapy can help reverse this.

Vision Therapy also does not involve surgery. It is always better to try a non-invasive intervention before surgery.

If you have a question as to whether or not Vision Therapy would be helpful for your child. Please feel free to be in touch with us at Miller Vision today.
