Diagnosis of Amblyopia
Early eye check up by the ophthalmologist will help to detect amblyopia.
Detection of the disease is sometimes difficult because one eye has normal vision. Regular eye checkup in children below the age of six years can detect and prevent amblyopia.
The most important diagnostic tools are the special visual acuity tests other than the standard letter charts used by the eye doctor.
When amblyopia is suspected, the doctor will evaluate the following:
- Eye alignment
- Eye movements
- The brainís ability to blend two images into a single image
