  Surgery



Amblyopia resulting from physical problems like strabismus can be treated with surgery. The muscles which hamper the focus of the eyes are treated in this surgery. Amblyopia arising out of cataract and droopy eyes are also treated by surgery.

If the amblyopic condition is due to nearsightedness or farsightedness, effective treatment of it can cure amblyopia. The treatment mainly involves eye glasses with or without patches. Also children who are not expected to fully recover from amblyopia should wear eye glasses with protective lenses of polycarbonate.

Earlier it was thought that treatments for amblyopia were futile in older children and teenagers. But latest researches conducted by National Eye Institute shows that the treatments meted out to young children are effective in older children and teenagers.
