Sometimes strabismus can cause amblyopia, and sometimes it's the other way around with amblyopia causing strabismus.
When a kid has both conditions, it may be difficult to say which came first.
When May was a child, she was a lonely girl with a lazy eye and without any friends except a weird and ugly doll kept in a glass case given by her bizarre mother on her birthday.
If a doctor or parent suspects a kid has strabismus, he or she will be sent to a special eye doctor called an ophthalmologist (say: af-thal-MAH-luh-jist). Kids who have amblyopia may need to wear a patch over the good eye to strengthen the weaker one.The doctor will examine the kid's eyes and ask him or her to read a chart on the wall or look into a microscope-type machine. If the doctor thinks a kid has strabismus, there are different ways to treat it. For any kid who has strabismus or amblyopia, starting treatment as soon as possible is the best way to improve vision. Like teasing for any reason, this causes hurt feelings.In 1983, financially struggling college student Samantha Hughes takes a strange babysitting job that coincides with a full lunar eclipse.She slowly realizes her clients harbor a terrifying secret, putting her life in mortal danger.When a kid has strabismus, the eyes don't focus together on the same object and each eye sends a different picture to the brain.
As a result, the brain might see two images (double vision) or the object looks blurry.
Kids' brains are really smart, and they don't like getting two different pictures instead of one.
To fix the problem, the brain may ignore the picture coming from the one eye so it gets only one clear image.
They date, but the weirdness and bizarre behavior of May pushes Adam away from her.
Alone, May has a brief affair with Polly, but she feels rejected again when her colleague meets Ambrosia.
You may have heard someone describe an eye that is not straight as a lazy eye, but that is not what lazy eye means. The medical term for lazy eye is amblyopia (say: am-blee-OH-pee-uh).
