What is amblyopia?

Lazy Eye

Amblyopia is a childhood problem that happens when one eye is weaker than the other. The brain chooses to take in images from the stronger eye and ignore images from the weaker eye.

Keratoconus treatment often depends on the severity of the keratoconus symptoms. During early stages, vision can be corrected with eyeglasses.

You should also refrain from rubbing your eyes, as this can aggravate the thin corneal tissue and make symptoms worse.

Keratoconus

Diagnosis

Your ophthalmologist will be able to diagnose keratoconus during a routine eye exam. A slit lamp can be used to diagnose severe cases of keratoconus, but sometimes corneal topography is needed to diagnose the more subtle cases of keratoconus.
