    Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus

    Patching, or occlusion, therapy is the mainstay of amblyopia treatment. Patching the unaffected or better-seeing eye provides monocular stimulation to the amblyopic eye, promoting more normal visual development. Occlusion therapy is prescribed to improve visual acuity and, as a rule, does not eliminate strabismus.
