Amblyopia or lazy eye is a condition which affects children when the vision in one eye doesn’t develop properly. This means the child cannot see as clearly out of one of their eyes and relies more heavily on their ‘good’ eye. It is estimated between 1 in 30 and 1 in 50 children will develop a lazy eye, which is usually diagnosed around the age of 4.
