    Lazy eyes are also known as amblyopia. It is a kind of visual disease. People who suffer lazy eyes are with a vision deficiency, because the visual stimulation from the environment could not be transmitted or poorly transmitted through the optic nerve to our brain continuously. This disease often happens in children and the most of children have only one lazy eye. In this case, children patient can be healed by some treatment. However, if the two eyes both suffer the symptom, the chance of successful treatment reduces, especially the patient whose age exceeds five.
