What is Amblyopia?

Amblyopia, also known as “lazy eye,” is a vision problem that affects just two to three percent of the population, but if left uncorrected, it can have a very big impact on their lives. Central vision does not develop properly, usually in one eye, which is called amblyopic. A related condition, strabismus, sometimes causes amblyopia.
