Amblyopia or “lazy eye” is a widespread disorder among patients, especially among young children. The disorder is characterized by a poor performance of one eye or, sometimes, of both eyes. Although the eye is perfectly normal from the anatomical point of view, the image that is formed in the brain is not the correct one. Therefore, the eye will be “ignored” by the brain becoming a lazy one, and the patient will come to see only with the other eye. Without binocular, stereoscopic vision, the patient will have difficulty while orienting in space, will not be able to appreciate correctly the distances between objects, etc. The absence of binocular vision will have a strong impact on the harmonious development of the child with amblyopia, because seeing is the sense by meaning of which the child mostly contacts with the environment, learns, develops, and orientates himself in space. A poor vision will cause a delay in the development of a child. A child with a poor vision will certainly have difficulties in school or social integration.
