Amblyopia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Amblyopia is reduced visual acuity in one or both eyes due to reduced visual input or abnormal binocular interaction early in life. Amblyopic eyes also have deficits in contrast sensitivity, accommodation, and spatial orientation [56]. The prevalence of amblyopia is 3-5% [4]; it is usually unilateral and associated with anisometropia or strabismus (or both). Its onset is in the first decade of life, but its effects can last a lifetime [4]. Amblyopia is best diagnosed and treated as early as possible, but data from clinical trials have challenged the notion of a significant age effect of treatment [35, 36].
