Need to treat strabismus and amblyopia in time

What is strabismus?

It’s when a child is looking at an object, the visual axes of both eyes are not aligned properly.

What is amblyopia?

It’s when there is no obvious organic lesion in the eyes, but the monocular or binocular visual acuity after correction is still below 1.0.

Your child may suffer or has suffered
strabismus or amblyopia when the one of the following conditions is found

  • 01

    Eye position is abnormal

  • 02

    Child often falls down when walking

  • 03

    Child squints and leans forward too close when looking at an object

  • 04

    Eyes are dull, slow to react and can't move with the object when looking at an object

  • 05

    Child is afraid of light and sensitive to light

  • 06

    Eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements, and have no stereoscopic vision

Strabismus or amblyopia will cause lifelong harm if not treated timely if not treated timely

  • Lifelong "visual impairment"

  • Negative effect on appearance

  • Serious influence on learning

  • Mental illness

Pediatric strabismus treatment

  • Check the eyes to exclude strabismus caused by organic lesions in the eyes
  • Conduct mydriasis optometry check to determine whether there is myopia, astigmatism or amblyopia
  • Non-surgical treatment: correct strabismus by wearing glasses or visual training
  • Surgical treatment: protect or rebuild children's visual functions by surgery

Classification and Treatment of Pediatric Amblyopia – Classification

  • Mild amblyopia (corrected visual acuity 0.6-0.8)

  • Moderate amblyopia (corrected visual acuity 0.2-0.5)

  • Severe amblyopia (corrected visual acuity below 0.1)

1.Conduct mydriasis optometry check to learn about the refractive state, then wear appropriate glasses to correct hyperopia, myopia or astigmatism first;

2.Make treatment scheme based on the amblyopia conditions after correction by wearing glasses

Because of the limited curative effect of each therapy, 2~3 therapies are often used for comprehensive treatment.
