The Shocking Truth About Lazy Eye Correction for Adults

  
  
  
The Shocking Truth About Lazy Eye Correction for Adults

Sometimes the best part of what we do is surprising the heck out of people when we help improve their vision.  A case in point:  Revealing that for amblyopes, there is the potential for lazy eye correction for adults.

Is this shocking?  For many developmental optometrists out there, this is nothing new.  We’re keenly aware of the misconception in the scientific and medical communities:  Some practitioners believe there is no effective treatment for lazy eye in children older than the age of eight.

Adult amblyopes may be surprised (and overjoyed) to learn that this just isn’t the case.  Adults can be treated for amblyopia. 

Why the Misconception Over Lazy Eye Correction for Adults

Neuroscientist Sue Barry, in her book Fixing My Gaze, notes that since the mid 1990s, “scientific and medical communities have cited strabismus and a related disorder called amblyopia as classic examples of developmental disorders that cause permanent changes in vision if they are not corrected in a critical period in early life.”

The reason for the confusion can be tied back to some scientific research performed by David Hubel and Torsten Wiesel at Harvard Medical School.  The two studied cats with strabismus, or turned eyes.  It was noted that the cats could not see in 3D (also known as stereo vision) because they had not developed normally.

From this research, doctors and scientists assumed the cats would never acquire stereo vision since they had never developed it during the critical period of vision development, which are approximately ages two to eight. 

It was assumed that if certain skills were not learned by the brain at this early age, it just wouldn’t happen.

Research Proves Them Wrong

Recent research tells us a different story.  The circuitry of the brain can actually change at any age as a result of our actions and experiences. 

In fact, a study, funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI), appeared in the April issue of

Archives of Ophthalmology. According to the director of the NEI, Paul A. Sieving, M.D., Ph.D., “Doctors now feel confident that traditional treatments for amblyopia will work for many older children.”

While the “traditional treatments” this statement refers to is patching, more research indicates that treating a patient with vision therapy, in conjunction with a limited amount of patching, is most effective.

If you’re an adult, and have suffered from amblyopia your entire life, you may not exactly be shocked to read this article.  Medical research dispels previously held notions quite often.  But we’d be shocked if you didn’t schedule a Functional Vision Test with a developmental optometrist to see what can be done to treat your lazy eye.

Hello, I too have lazy eye, but my case is a little different. I'm currenly 18, and when I was 3 I was injured by a dart in my right eye. Its almost completly blind (I do have a little periferal vision in it) and it is slightly lazy. It will drift off without me knowing some times and is painful on occasion. would there be a way to fix my situation as well?

I am an 25 year old with a lazy eye. I've been wearing glasses since age 7. Its only recently I've started reading about lazy eyes. During this researched I've realized that this could have been prevented had my optometrist and parents put in the necessary effort. Instead of just giving glasses explain that it u can train ur eyes. My question now is at aged 25 can I still train my lazy eyes?

I just learned that my 11 year old son gas a lazy eye. The eye doctor said that it is too late to correct his sight. I ASKED him if he has heard about vision therapy and it seems that he is skeptical. I do want to help my son.

We are very sad our son is beautiful we want to help him. Thanks,

I have had an lazy eye my whole life, now I turned 65 and my lazy eye starts to see better and better all the time!. This happened slowly when my right (good eye) was diagnosed with normal glaucoma some years ago. My right eye is getting worser all the time but suddenly my lazy left eye started to function. It took some years to be able to see even details with this eye. I cannot read books, text, tv or computers with this eye but would be able to walk around and see my surroundings /of course not completely clear yet/. 
 
I did a lot of excercises for my eyes on a daily basis and this was meant for my good right eye, but somehow it has helped the lazy eye as well to start working. 
 
I just would like all of you to know that a lazy eye can start to see, especially if the other eye starts seeing less. I think this all happens in the brain mainly. 
 
I hope this will help you all. 
 
Kind regards 
 
Helena
Posted @ Saturday, April 20, 2013 3:15 PM by Helena
Glad your vision improved, Helena. I'm not entirely sure what happened with your vision, but a lazy eye issue can be treated effectively if both eyes work together. Restoring binocular vision is the key.

Hi, I've had vision trouble in my right eye as long as I can remember. I dont ever remember having an eye exam when I was young. Ive tried glasses and contacts for my eye with some improvement but not enough to see well without my good left eye. Nobody ever told me I have a lazy eye. I've noticed for years the eyelid droops somewhat over that eye. There was one dr that had me try the eye patch once but the vision was so bad I couldn't do anything when I had it on so I didn't continue. I'm now 43 yrs old and I wear bifocals which help some but still not satisfied, especially since I deliver mail part time as a living and my depth perception is horrible. You should see the damage to my car mirrors from the mailboxes I've hit. Is there a specialist in my area that can help me? I live in Swainsboro GA.

Hi guys! 
Thank you so much for this informative website. I am 22 years old and I currently live in eastern Canada. I've been diagnosed at about 1 year old, and still suffer from amblyopia. I have been involved in research on the issue, but no one is disposed to help me, since my amblyopia is severe (+strabismus). Bottom line is: how much do you charge per vision therapy appointment, and how long in advance should I book? 
 
Thanks! :)

Hi  
My 23 year old daughter has ambliopia.  
It was severe at birth with both eyes wild.  
She had here first surgery at six months old. Which straightened her eyes but then they veered outward and by the age of two she had her second surgery to correct it. Then we thought it was just too much surgery after that so no more surgeries.  
She wears contacts which get her eyes close but it's obvious that she has a lazy eye The people say things to her which is embarrassing to her. And as her father... 
Is there somewhere near sacramento or san Francisco that will help her?

We'd recommend you visit covd.org to see if there is a doctor close to where you live.

Sir, 
I am glad to see this article. 
My 15 years son has congenital cataract in left eye.we took him for treatment within 5 weeks of age but eye surgeons discouraged us from going for surgery as the cataract removal involves risk. 
Now he has no vision in left eye and it became Lazy eye. 
I read in some websites, correction of lazy eye with no vision is futile and it will again become lazy eye.is it true?  
Lazy eye can be corrected only if it has vision? 
We live in India and we are willing to come to US for surgery if it will help my son. 
The addresses you provided in India are near to us. We can meet them also. 
Will the vision be restored? Or only Squint is corrected? 
Plz suggest. Thank you . 
Radhika

Radhika - I will pass this along to our developmental optometrists to see what they say. I would suggest that you start with the Indian optometrists we linked to, however.
