@baymax Sir, How is amblyopia formed ?

1 Answers

The formation of amblyopia is mainly due to the following reasons:

1.Visual deprivation: corneal opacity, congenital cataract, congenital ptosis, vitreous opacity and other diseases that prevent light from entering the eye normally, affecting vision.

2.Insufficient retinal imaging: ametropia such as hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism that cause light to be imaged on the retina unclearly, affecting the quality of vision.

3.Inhibition of one eye: for example, strabismus causes diplopia and confusion, causing the brain to inhibit the visual impulse from the eye with strabismus, resulting in amblyopia.

4.Inhibition and disuse of one eye: anisometropic amblyopia is caused by different refractive errors between the two eyes, resulting in two different-sized images in the brain and a visual conflict. The brain chooses to see one of the images, resulting in monocular amblyopia.

5.Impairment of visual perception ability: congenital or juvenile retinal or neurological diseases cause damage to visual perception ability, resulting in amblyopia.

Please note that the above are the main reasons for the formation of amblyopia, and the specific situation may differ. If you have any concerns or symptoms related to amblyopia, please consult a professional doctor for diagnosis and treatment promptly.
