“lazy eye”, approximately 2% of children younger than 10 have this.
Caused by a muscle imbalance or childhood cataracts resulting in blurred/double vision.
Refractive Amblyopia: One type of lazy eye, called refractive amblyopia, is caused when one eye is more nearsighted or farsighted than the other, making it difficult for the eyes to focus together.
StrabismicAmblyopia: Another common cause of lazy eye is strabismus. Strabismus, often referred to as a crossed or wandering eye, is a condition in which the brain is unable to properly align the eyes.
Treated by having the child wear a patch over the stronger eye until muscle strength improves in weaker eye . Other methods for treatment include eye drops, corrective glasses, and special eye exercises
Teachers may be asked to help give treatment, be supportive, and make accommodations for students.
