Hello doctor,

I am 25 years old. I have a problem of left eye muscle weakness which is lazy eye and due to which my two eyeballs do not coordinate most of the time. I feel complex and low. Unfortunately, I have been an amazing student and never worried about it. I never did any exercise for it. Can I get this corrected by using a patch and doing exercise for muscle strength? I do not want to go for surgery. Please guide me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You may have two distinct but inter-related problems of squint and amblyopia. Squint is the deviation of eye and amblyopia is the lazy eye.
  • Patching will work when you are younger, usually less than 10 years of age.
  • Vision therapy is a new treatment available and is non-surgical. So, you may seek the same.
