A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Lazy Eye
I had a question the other day about lazy eye.
The medical term for lazy eye is amblyopia.
Amblyopia happens in childhood when one eye is weaker than the other.
The brain chooses to take in images from the stronger eye and ignore images from the weaker eye.
This means your child uses the strong eye more than the weak eye.
If the weak eye doesn’t have to work, it isn’t able to develop good vision.
This leads to poor vision in the weaker eye.
Amblyopia usually affects only one eye.
The problem starts between birth and about age 7.
Your child may not even know he or she is using only one eye.
Ignoring the images from the weak eye is an automatic response.
Your child has no control over it.
Early treatment usually can reverse amblyopia.
The younger your child is when treatment starts, the more likely your child is to have good vision.
Any condition preventing your child’s eyes from forming a clear, focused image or preventing the normal use of one or both eyes can cause amblyopia.
Your child may be more likely to have amblyopia if someone else in your family had it or if your child had a premature birth or low birth weight.
In most cases, amblyopia doesn’t cause symptoms.
But your child may:
>Have an eye that wanders or doesn’t move with the other eye.
>Have eyes that don’t move in the same direction or fix on the same point.
>Cry or complain when one eye is covered.
>Squint or tilt the head to look at something.
>Have an upper eyelid that droops.
For amblyopia to be treated, your child must use the weak eye.
This will force the eye to get stronger.
Over time this corrects the vision in the weak eye.
Your child may have to wear a patch or glasses most of the day or for part of each day.
Treatment may last for a few weeks or months.
To deal with lazy eye and support eye health it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Increase your intake of essential fats (flax oil, Omega-3 oils, etc.).
*Include the following in your diet: broccoli, raw cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, green vegetables, squash, sunflower seeds, and watercress.
*Drink fresh carrot juice.
*Eliminate sugar and white flour from your diet.
*Have a diet rich in bioflavonoids (berries, colorful veggies, etc.).
*Eliminate toxic personal care products.
*Eliminate toxic household and laundry cleaners.
*Eliminate poor air quality, which could be irritating.
*Eliminate chlorinated shower/bath water, which could be irritating.
*Eliminate “hidden” allergies or sensitivities, which may aggravate your eyes.
*Avoid free radical damage; check heavy metal toxicity.
