Prevent Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
Amblyopia is a condition where the optic nerve(s) do(es) not develop completely, which means vision is blurry even with glasses on.
If you were prescribed glasses, wear them until at least 16 years of age to make sure that your optic nerves develop completely.
Amblyopia can also be caused by cross-eye, congenital cataracts (born with cataracts) or other diseases that block the light from entering the eye and reaching the retina (back of the eye that captures light).
So it is very important to have children's eyes examined as young as possible to find out if they have any conditions that need to be resolved before leading to amblyopia.
