Lazy Eye / Amblyopia Symptoms, Information & Causes

General Lazy Eye / Amblyopia Information
Lazy eye, also known as amblyopia, is an uncorrectable loss of vision in an eye that appears to be normal. It cannot be fully corrected with lenses. Lazy eye usually develops in childhood before age 8. Since a child's visual system is fully developed between the ages of 9-11, it becomes extremely difficult to treat amblyopia after age 8. Untreated, amblyopia can lead to total blindness in the affected eye.

Amblyopia is more than simply an eye health problem. It involves the "wiring" of the nerve impulses from the eyes to the brain. As a child grows, his eyes learn to focus equally, Under normal circumstances, a child‘s eyes learn to focus equally; however, if the images he sees aren't clear in one eye, or if the image isn't the same in both eyes, the vision pathways become stronger on the side that does focus well and weaker on the side that doesn't. This must be corrected as early as possible before the child's brain learns to permanently suppress or ignore the weaker eye.

Possible Causes of Lazy Eye / Amblyopia
Lazy eye starts when the pathways of vision in the brain do not grow strong enough. This can be due to poor nutrition or inherited vision problems. Some other causes of amblyopia include strabismus (crossed or turned eye), congenital cataracts, cloudy cornea, droopy eyelid, or unequal vision due to injuries, diseases or infections.

Possible Symptoms of Lazy Eye / Amblyopia
People with amblyopia lack binocular vision or stereopsis (the ability to blend the images of both eyes together). Stereopsis is what gives vision depth perception. Without it, the ability to judge distance or depth is impaired. Other symptoms include poor vision in one or both eyes, squinting or closing one eye while reading or watching television, crossed eye or the need to turn or tilt the head when looking at an object.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Lazy Eye / Amblyopia
All children should have a routine eye exam performed by the age of 2-3 to detect potential problems. Treatment for lazy eye typically includes vision therapy, eyeglasses and contact lenses, or a patch. Surgery alone cannot treat amblyopic. The treatment for amblyopia depends on the underlying problem. In some cases, the strong eye is temporarily patched so the child is forced to use the weaker eye making it stronger. This may take several weeks. During this period the covered or patched eye must be used occasionally so it does not lose it's strength. Problems that impair vision, such as cataracts or droopy eyelids, often require surgery. Sometimes, eye drops or special glasses are used to blur the vision in the stronger eye. This makes the weaker eye become stronger.

Beneficial Dietary Supplements
DHA is the primary structural fatty acid in the gray matter of the brain and retina of the eye. It is important for signal transmission in the brain, eye and nervous system.

Vitamin A is important for strong healthy eyes.

Beta-carotene is a form of pre-vitamin A, which is readily converted to vitamin A in the body.

Retinal is used in the body for regulating the development of various tissues, such as the cells of the skin, eyes, and the lining of the lungs and intestines.

Zinc deficiency may reduce the activity of retinol dehydrogenase, an enzyme needed to help vitamin A work in the eye.

Magnesium improves vision in people with vision problems.

Selenium is an antioxidant and trace mineral that supports eye health.

B Vitamins and Folic Acid deficiencies can lead to blindness.

Digestive Enzymes are important because deficiencies may impair the absorption of needed minerals such as vitamin A, zinc and copper for retinal health.

Multi-mineral Supplements replenish mineral balance.

Bilberry enhances night vision and may also slow the progression of eye problems.
