Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, is a condition where vision does not develop properly during early childhood.
After the age of seven to eight years, the development of the child’s brain area that processes vision is almost complete. If the brain has not received clear images from the weak eye prior to that, it would be difficult to improve vision in that eye after the visual part of the brain development is complete. The eye is then said to be “amblyopic” or “lazy”. If left untreated, visual impairment can become permanent.
