Helping HK Children with Lazy Eyes
services to kids to help treat a range of eye conditions. If young clients
are found to have visual problems such as amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (squint),
focusing disorder (accommodation) and abnormal eye movements during their
binocular vision or visual acuity assessment, our optometrists may advise them
to undergo vision therapy in order to correct or improve their visual functions
and visual acuity.
In treating amblyopia, optometrists may use an eye patch on the good eye, forcing the use of the amblyopic eye to correct its vision. They may also provide children with practices of handling small objects, such as stringing beads on a fish wire or thread, to stimulate development of the amblyopia eye.
Our team offers children lazy eye training in HK, which can help improve vision without drastic measures being taken. In treating amblyopia, optometrists may use a patch on the good eye, forcing the use of the amblyopic one to correct its vision. They may also provide children with practices of handling small objects, such as stringing beads on a fish wire or thread, to stimulate development of the lazy eye.
During the course of eye training, which may last a long period, optometrists will devise a variety of exercises using different equipment, tools and computer programmes based on children’s condition.
Clients under the age of seven normally have the best outcomes for vision therapy, as treatment on more developed eyes proves less effective. The therapy will be carried out at both the centre and the child’s home. To achieve optimal results, parents and their child should work closely with the trainer.
If you would like more information on our examinations and treatment services, or how we may assist your child in achieving improved vision, please get in touch with our staff located in our HK centre.
