The good news for adults with amblyopia is that there is a possibility for improved vision. But there are no guarantees. Every case is different, and every patient must be thoroughly evaluated through a Functional Vision Test.. However, we strongly encourage you to visit a Developmental Optometrist and see if treatment is possible for you.
Jul 01, 2013 · Amblyopia is a visual developmental disorder in which the vision through one eye fails to develop properly in early childhood. The deficit is not in the eye itself but in the visual areas of the 4.1/5(51).
Amblyopia can result from any condition that prevents the eye from focusing clearly. Amblyopia can be caused by the misalignment of the two eyes—a condition called strabismus. With strabismus, the eyes can cross in (esotropia) or turn out (exotropia). Occasionally, amblyopia is caused by a clouding of the front part of the eye, a condition called cataract.
