The most frequently used treatment for amblyopia is to induce the brain to begin using the poorly developed eye and restore the nurve signals between the eye and the brain. This can be accomplished by first correcting any inherent issues that were the root cause of the issue such as simply a higher prescription on the week eye versus the helty eye. Then by simpky patching the strong eye and forcint the brain to use the week one. In the beginning, the pacient will have trouble seeing with only the week eye. Nevertheless, it is extremely important to continue to wear the patch because this can eventually enhance eyesight and reduce amblyopia. Normally it takes months or weeks for an eye patch to enhance eyesight. Follow your physician’s directions carefully and follow the program. Also it is imperative for the patient to be monitored during treatment so make sure that there is a set schedule of visits to your eye professional.
