Amblyopia also known as lazy eye, is a disorder of the visual system that is characterized by poor or indistinct vision in an eye that is otherwise physically normal, or out of proportion to associated structural abnormalities. This condition exists when the eyes do not seem to focus clearly on anything, near or far. It can be serious to constitute a type of blindness.

Causes: This is blurry or absent vision in an eye that is structurally normal. It occurs in young children if the two eyes send different images to the brain. If the problem is not solved by the age of 5, later attempts to correct vision will fail. This is because the brain will disconnect the vision from one of the eyes. Misalignment of the gaze of the eyes is the most common cause. Other causes include vision disorders in one eye, such as astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness.

Natural remedies for amblyopia:

  • Lack of vitamins B1, and B12 appears to be a primary cause. Smoke from cigarettes and cigars is another important cause.
  • Take B12 intermuscularly (1,000 mcg / day for total of 20,000 mcg). This will often solve the problem, along with an adequate supply of vitamin D and calcium.
  • Get tobacco out of your house and office.
