Summary of Amblyopia Treatments & Study Findings

Dr. Nate of Bright Eyes Family Vision Care recently published a summary of findings on different treatments for amblyopia on his blog. The article summarizes findings from various studies with reference links.

This is a Must Read article that addresses topics such as:

  • Which is "better" or more effective - atropine vs patching?
  • patching frequency/duration - full time, part time - does it matter?
  • Age - is there a magic age that Amblyopia must be corrected by?

  1. Glad you found it useful. Of course, there is much more research than this and maybe I'll do a follow up, but this seemed enough for one post.

    Cheers.

  3. I consulted a few optometrists in Indianapolis, and I'm still trying to decide what treatment should I undergo. One optometrist suggested this eye patch for initial treatment, but I'm not quite sure if it will actually cure my lazy eye. My right is the one with blurred vision. I have been very conscious about this eye disorder since my teenage years. So, do you think I should give the eye patch treatment a try?
