SST 6 Regional Meeting for Public Feedback on Revising the Operating Standards for Students with Disabilities Rescheduled for March 27th
Amblyopia (am-blē-ˈō-pē-ə) sometimes referred to as "lazy eye" is the loss of one eye's ability to see details. It is the most common cause of vision problems in children. Amblyopia occurs when the nerve pathway from one eye to the brain does not develop during childhood. When this is present, the abnormal eye sends a blurred image or the wrong image to the brain. This confuses the brain, and the brain may learn to ignore the image from the weaker eye. Amblyopia is a treatable condition. The most common treatment of amblyopia is patching the strong eye. Patching forces the brain to recognize the image from the amblyopic eye and correct itself.
