What is Amblyopia?

Amblyopia or “lazy eye” is a rather common disorder, especially among young children. It is manifested as a poor performance of one of the eyes.

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.
Optisan Clinic comes to support you and your children and ensures that pediatric ophthalmology specialists will quickly diagnose AMBLYOPIA (lazy eye). After establishing the diagnosis, by prescribing a personalized treatment, your child’s vision will improve to perceive correctly and efficiently all aspects of the environment and to develop harmoniously.

Amblyopia (lazy eye) is favored by several factors including: strabismus (lack of eye parallelism and abnormal fixation of one of them), difference in diopter between the two eyes, congenital cataract, along with other causes that affect the transparency of ocular media.

Normal vision develops when both eyes are used evenly. Amblyopia, also called the “lazy eye,” usually starts when an eye is not used enough for an appropriate development of the visual system in the brain. Usually, only one eye is affected, but it may also occur in both eyes.
The lazy eye is not a sick one. It is perfectly healthy from the anatomical (structural) point of view, but the image supplied to and projected on the brain cortex is not correct.
In case of amblyopia, the active, functional eye will undertake the tasks of the lazy eye, and the latter will not transmit the projection of the image to the cerebral cortex. Thus, such properties of the vision system like orientation in space, evaluation of distances and moving objects, as well as visual field are affected.

Following a consultation, the ophthalmologist may detect amblyopia at an early stage or prevent it if it has not yet been developed.
In most children, amblyopia is hard to detect. Signs that may indicate amblyopia are:

  • the child does not fix and follow objects
  • the child is crying or protesting at an attempt to cover one of the eyes
  • the eyes are not parallel or do not move simultaneously in certain directions
  • the child approaches his toys to the eye and sits too close to the TV
  • abnormal position of the head (head turned / bent to one side)
  • a fallen eyelid, covering the pupil
  • low transparency of cornea

Any of the above mentioned signs should determine you to search for an ophthalmologist’s advice.
Frequently, the child has no complaints and no specific signs, and only the ophthalmologist can identify a poor vision.
At Optisan Clinic we have performant diagnostic devices, making possible to consult children aged as small as a few months.

The traditional, and single until recent, method of treating amblyopia was occlusion, i.e. coverage of the eye with good vision. Thus, the lazy eye, with poor vision, is stimulated by vision exercise and “forced” to see. However, the effectiveness of this method is minimal, and children are usually stressed by wearing the occlusion.

In order to have an effective treatment of amblyopia it is also important to make optical correction of refractive disturbances by prescribing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

An innovative method of treating amblyopia is the AMBLIONET TREATMENT PROGRAM. By means of orthoptical exercises, included in this program, there is a fast enhancement in vision. As a result of visual training there is a faster recovery of vision, thus abolishing hours of occlusion, which bring so much distress to the child.

AD Vision Therapy is a program of non-invasive pleoptic and orthoptic exercises for lazy eye recovery. Entertaining and interactive, the application is able to recover the vision of the lazy eye within a few months. Orthoptic therapy in front of a computer monitor constrains the brain to receive impulses from the lazy eye and process the information correctly, generating a clear image of the objects.
The vision therapy is suitable both for children and adults.
Optisan Clinic specialists successfully treated patients aged between 6 and 47 years old.

AD Vision Therapy

It’s simple, affordable and efficient!

  • The AMBLIONET program is very easy to use.
  • The AMBLIONET program provides therapy of vision through orthoptic exercises, that use neuroplasticity of the brain, its strong ability to learn or revive, thus making it possible to treat amblyopia (lazy eye).
  • The Home Therapy program consists of 12 “games” intended to re-establish the connection between lazy eye and the part of the brain responsible for its image, thus improving vision.
  • Every day, your child will automatically join 6 game-based processes. Initially, the targets will be easy to see, but with steps forward they will become smaller and smaller.
  • The objective is to force the lazy eye to see continually smaller and smaller details.
  • During the procedure, the child will not approach the screen less than 60 cm.
