    Amblyopia, with another name lazy eye, is an eye disease which bothers a large number of people worldwide. And it is said that amblyopia is the leading cause of eye problems in children. As far as I know, amblyopia is easily treated and completely curable if caught early, but may lead to lifelong visual problems if left uncorrected. There are 2 main ways to treat amblyopia: eye patch and eye drops. It is best to treat the problem before age 5, which may result in a complete cure with no lingering effects. So you are required to bring your baby to see a doctor as soon as possible.
