What are the signs of Amblyopia?


Amblyopia generally develops in young children, before age six. Its symptoms often are noted by parents or health-care professionals. If a child squints or completely closes one eye to see, he or she may have amblyopia. Other signs include overall poor visual acuity, eyestrain and headaches.
