Amblyopia is the partial vision in one eye, rarely both.
It may be irreversible. His eyes are apparently normal, but upon examination it is found that one eye sees well and the other look bad. This visual defect must be corrected before the age of six. Then it is too late and the child will be invalid in one eye forever. It causes blindness. Some authors call it "lazyeye ..." or even "lazy eye ...". Personally I do not agree with any of these terms. Some parents think that the "lazy eye" ... this with "lazy" ... and if one day you remove the "laziness" ... suddenly back to normal ... which is completely false.
To AMBLIOPYA, we must have him very carefully that causes permanent disability for a child and determines the risk of blindness if the person has anaccident or illness during adulthood, which may injure the only remaining eye. | 450 years B.C. Hippocrates... said: "If the doctor does not find any alteration in the eyes of a child and if the child does not see for one of them... the diagnosis is AMBLIOPY” The global campaign launched in 1987 ... and 99% of the population had no idea of the existence of this serious eye problem ...
It shouldbe noted that the child seems perfectly normal eyes, however, one only looks good and the other seems perfectly normal, it works very badly. If this is discovered after six years of age ... it may be too late.Every human being is exposed. Hence the importance of finding the child at risk of amblyopia in time. Amblyopia can be severe, medium and light. |
