Amblyopia or “lazy eye” is a condition affecting 2 to 3 percent of the U.S. population and one in every 20 preschoolers. It can cause permanent loss of vision if left untreated. Amblyopia usually affects only one eye resulting in a condition known as monocular vision. Many children don’t realize they should be able to see through both eyes. Parents are often completely unaware of any problem with their child’s sight.
According to Mark Ruttum, M.D., Professor of Ophthalmology at Medical College of Wisconsin, when amblyopia is detected before age 3, approximately 95% of children recover their vision. After age 6, it can be difficult to totally correct. Dr. Ruttum believes that parents need to be sure their young children receive comprehensive examinations that check the functioning of each eye.
