Amblyopia - Eye Laziness

In childhood, normal vision development is achieved when clear images are detected from both eyes without slipping. Conditions such as slippage are adversely affected, resulting in eye libido or decreased visual acuity. Half of the children with suspicion develop eye laceration. When diagnosed early, treatment is possible in the first 8-9 years of life. However, the post-9-year treatment success for vision is quite low, so the earlier the diagnosis, the higher the success of treatment. Eye lash is not a progressive disease, so vision is not completely lost.


Amblyopia is often affected by a single eye, approximately 4 out of every 100 people have eye lacerations. Every child should have an eye examination until the age of 3 for diagnosis and early treatment of eye libido. Unlike the widely accepted view of the newborn infant, the infant may be seen during the newborn period, but not at the sight level of the adult, and only reaches the adult level at 1.5-2 years. The development is achieved by the use of the eyes, so the child's vision system is flexible and shaped according to the use of the eyes. But strabismus, laziness in the presence of an obstacle such as cataract, low eyelid, which prevents the formation of a vision in one eye, needs glasses with different grades in two eyes. That is to say, the vision system can not provide normal development even though it has visual potential. The diagnosis of amblyopia may be delayed because the diagnosis of the family may be delayed, especially in cases where there is no wonder and there is often a need for high and different glasses. Eyeglasses and strabismus can also be detected during infancy, when the child can not speak. In addition, cataracts, inflammation, tumors or other ocular diseases that can cause vision loss other than eye laceration can also be detected.


For the treatment of eye laxity, eye straining, eyewear, or cataracts are treated, and then the eye closes, which is good enough to force the eye to use less. Eye drops or special working systems can be used if the child is very resistant to closing, but it is not the most effective treatment. Eye lash does not progress if it is not treated, but after the developmental period it is not possible to treat it and it causes difficulty in using both eyes together and perception of depth feeling, policing, piloting etc. - Equal and good vision in both eyes is provided by normal use of eyes during early development of life. If this normal development is not achieved in the first 9 years of life, laziness develops. - Eye lashes rarely cause complaints, so eye check in the first 3 years is of great importance for diagnosis and treatment. The ideal time for initial examination is around 1 year. - The most important diseases causing eye laxity are strabismus, broken fingers and cataracts. - Early diagnosis, control follow-ups, and understanding of the importance of the situation in the community make up the basis for treatment of off-site treatment. - Does reading or watching television distract the eyes? This is not true, since children have shorter arm distances and close accommodation capacities are high, they will soon be available for reading. There is no negative effect on the TV, apart from low amount of radiation coming from TV. However, an eye ophthalmologist should be able to observe the TV closely because it may be due to the accompanying flaw. - In the same way, there is a false belief that eyes will be broken in low illumination, but this is not true. The vision can adapt to changing lighting conditions, such as the ability to adjust the viewing distance to varying distances. Even in situations such as albinism, lens or corneal opacities, low illumination can provide more comfortable reading. - Wearing glasses will weaken the eyes and will not increase the need for glasses or cause the number to increase. It is the opposite and wearing glasses does not reduce the number of glasses.

Excess consumption of some foods such as carrots does not increase the visual acuity or remove the need for glasses.
