  • Amblyopia: is the medical term used when the vision in one of the eyes is reduced because the eye and the brain are not working together properly. The eye itself looks normal, but it is not being used normally because the brain is favoring the other eye. This condition is also sometimes called lazy eye.  Amblyopia is best treated during the preschool years. If untreated, amblyopia can cause irreversible visual loss in the affected eye. This is why vision screening in the preschool years is critical.  Amblyopia is the most common cause of visual impairment in childhood. The condition affects approximately 2 to 3 out of every 100 children.
  • Strabismus: is a misalignment of the eyes; one or both eyes may turn in, out, up, or down. If the same eye is chronically misaligned, amblyopia may develop in that eye. With early detection, vision can be restored by patching the properly aligned eye, which forces the misaligned one to regain sight. Surgery or glasses are usually required to realign the eyes.
  • Common vision problems known as refractive errors: refractive errors mean that the shape of the eye doesn’t refract, or bend light properly, so images appear blurred (out of focus). These are the most common vision problems. Refractive errors also can cause eyestrain and/or amblyopia. Nearsightedness is the most common refractive error in older children; others include farsightedness and astigmatism. These refractive errors are usually easily treated with different types of glasses and contact lenses. These vision problems are seen in almost 20% of children
