Don't let your lazy eye affect your life, take control by performing simple exercises to help fix your amblyopia

It is said that lazy-eye affects around 3 to 5% of adults as well as children in the world. Amblyopia or lazy eye as it is most typically referred to as. It is a very common eyesight disorder in children and is actually one of the primary reasons for  blindness in most adults. Lazy eye is a pathological problem which means that the pathways between your eyes and your brain are not playing nicely together, and that will leave you with mild to severe vision reduction in the eye suffering from Amblyopia.

There are several causes of amblyopia such as, strabismus, ( imbalance in the positionin) myopia, (nearsightedness) hyperopia, (farsightedness) just to list a few. If a child is suffering from lazy eye, it will be reasonably easy to correct through the use of exercises, one of which is by wearing an eye patch on the eye that is not  affected by amblyopia. However as adults it will be a little more difficult to correct however all hope is not lost, you will still be able to correct your vision naturally with the use of exercises, it just may take a little more work and time

Eye Exercises
If you're like most people that are seeking natural vision remedy's to improve their eyesight naturally you have been doing some research to find out how this is done. You have probably found quite a list of eye exercises to help you with your vision improvement. Even though there are a lot of eye exercises to help improve your vision naturally they are not yet recognized by eye care doctors as well as health insurance. They claim it is because there has not been any high-quality research done on this topic.

However this is starting to change a study done in 2010 regarding current biology by a professor named Teng Leng Ooi has found that adults who use specialized eye exercises to strengthen their eyes have actually seen quite an improvement in their eye affected by amblyopia. And it is most likely effective in the treatment of a child dealing with amblyopia.  Here are a couple of eye exercises you can try.

Push and Pull Exercises
Dr. Ooi and her associates have formulated eyesight strengthening exercises that they are calling "push-pull". It basically involves you setting up the some computer software, which will flash a visual cue to the lazy-eye, such as some objects like a square or triangle and then it will show you two slightly altered images, one for each eye. For example one will show some lines going up and then they will present a picture of lines going horizontal. If research continues to develop on the software it will most likely be made available to the public which is great news for us.

Video Game Exercises
Another eye exercise is the videogame exercise, the study was performed in 2007 that suggests playing video games can help improve lazy eye. It is not an all video games however but some videogames appear to improve inpatients suffering with amblyopia. The participants were much more willing to the treatment because they enjoyed playing video games.

Amblyopia Treatments

If you or a child is dealing with lazy eye and does not receive any treatment, you or the children usually well lose some of the vision in the eye that is affected, and it can actually become really serious if completely untreated, and may cause the eye to go completely blind. There are approved techniques of natural vision improvement through eye exercises. You can try placing an eyepatch over the good eye to develop muscles in the eye with amblyopia. You can also try eyedrops that contains something called atropine. Basically what this does is blurs your good eye so your son or daughter is forced to use the lazy eye, basically the same idea as the eyepatch. Personally I've never tried the eyedrops but from what I've read they tend to sting a little bit.
