Lazy eye can be caused by two different medical conditions. Amblyopia may cause
lazy eye due to damage to the ocular nerve. Lazy eye can also develop due to strabismus,
which is characterized by damage to the extra ocular muscles. Lazy eye due to
stabismus is the more commonly understood and more easily identified form of
lazy eye since it involves the inability to focus both eyes on a single fixed
place in space.
Lazy Eye Surgery
Lazy eye surgery is a treatment option that may be pursued by individuals who
want to use surgery for a lazy eye treatment. However, ambylopia surgery cannot
correct the vision loss. Amylopia surgery can only halt vision damage if it is
detected early. Lazy eye surgery can only correct lazy eye if the lazy eye is
the result of muscular problems.
