Do You Have a Lazy Eye?

Do you have a lazy eye?
Lazy eye, or amblyopia, is a condition in which vision is blurry and cannot be completely corrected with glasses or contact lenses. This usually occurs when the eyes are not aiming together or do not focus in the same place.

Good news! Lazy eye can be treated and vision can be improved, even in adulthood. The old thinking was that vision therapy exercises were only for children, but this is no longer true.

If you have been told that you have a lazy eye and "just have to live with it," please come to see us! We will evaluate your condition and tell you how you can improve your vision.
