If you or your child has strabismus or amblyopia, the Vision Therapy Clinic at the University Eye Center Los Angeles provides a Strabismus and Amblyopia Evaluation. This in-depth testing carefully evaluates the direction, frequency and size of the eye-turn and the brain’s ability to process the information received from both eyes.
The Strabismus and Amblyopia Evaluation can take 1 to 2 appointments depending on a variety of factors. Once the evaluation is completed the doctor will explain the results of the testing and discuss your treatment options. Treatment options can include the use of lenses, prism, occlusion (patching or drops), active vision therapy procedures or referral for surgery.
Vision therapy works by developing the brain’s ability to use both eyes simultaneously. Surgical treatment physically moves the muscles to new locations in an attempt to mechanically straighten the eye. Which treatment may be best for you or your child can be determined by your eye care provider after a thorough vision assessment.
