The La Cañada Junior Women’s Club will hold free eye screenings for amblyopia, commonly known as “lazy eye,” at local preschools this April.
About 3% of children have some form of this condition. It is not an eye disease and is fully curable if detected early. Amblyopia is when the vision in one eye does not develop properly. Standard eye tests for 3- and 4-year-olds do not test for this condition, which is one reason these eye screenings are so important. The good news is that amblyopia is curable until approximately age 6. After that age, the child’s brain learns to ignore the blurry image from the weaker eye and amblyopia becomes almost impossible to reverse.
