Amblyopia or Lazy eye

A lazy eye does not always cause symptoms and is often first diagnosed during an eye test. Many children do not notice anything wrong with their vision. You can check a younger childs eyes by covering each eye with your hand 1 at a time. They may complain if you cover their good eye. Older children may say theyre not able to see as well with 1 eye and may have problems with reading writing and drawing.
