One of the most common vision problems in kids is amblyopia (also called "lazy eye"). This is when one eye, or both, sends a blurry image to the brain. The brain then “learns” to see blurry. But treatment for amblyopia can correct the way the eye and brain work together to help strengthen your child's vision. At Nemours Children's, our kids' eye specialists are trained to detect amblyopia and provide expert care to treat it.
