    Question:

    If a child has lazy eye, is treatment necessary?


    Answer:

    The term lazy eye is a layman's term that has more than one meaning. Some people use this term to refer to an eye that is deviated, such as an eye that turns inward or outward. Others use the term to refer to an eye that does not see well due to a condition known in the medical world as amblyopia. In either case, the condition should be evaluated and treatment often necessary.
