Like I have said before Dr. Gunther is the nicest doctor and I couldn’t be treated better than he does.

Strabismus & Amblyopia

Two common eye problems that can develop at an early age are Strabismus and Amblyopia. Strabismus is a deviation or misalignment of the eyes where one eye is turned inward, outward, upward, or downward. Amblyopia, or lazy eye, occurs when one eye develops good vision and the other doesn’t. Both conditions are relatively common, and both should be treated as soon as possible to avoid complications in the future.

An ophthalmologist can instruct parents on the treatment of Amblyopia or Strabismus, but it requires much parental involvement to carry out the treatments. The parent will have a vital role in determining whether the child’s Amblyopia or Strabismus will be corrected.
