Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Pediatric Amblyopia (lazy eye)

Every year hundreds of children are evaluated and treated at Children’s National Hospital for amblyopia ("lazy eye") and its underlying causes. Children's National pediatric ophthalmologists have extensive experience in identifying and treating the condition, which affects 4-5% of the population.

Amblyopia is almost always treatable if detected early. With increased awareness, early vision screening and referral, and timely diagnosis and management of amblyopia, proper visual acuity can be restored. Drawing on their wide experience, Children's National pediatric ophthalmologists will design an individualized treatment plan for each child.

All members of the Pediatric Ophthalmology Team are trained to detect, properly diagnose, and manage strabismus in children and adults. Learn more about the Division of Ophthalmology and our locations or call us at 202-476-3015.
