3. Signs and Symptoms

Many patients with amblyopia, especially those who have a mild form, are usually unaware that they have this condition until they are tested at an older age. This is often due to their other eye being normal. On the affected eye, patients may have poor vision, low sensitivity to motion and contrast, and poor recognition of patterns.

Guardians may observe misalignment of the eyes (one eye may appear looking outward or inward while the other one is looking a different way) or fussing or crying when one eye is covered. Patients may have the two eyes not appearing to work together, often squinting, tilting of the head, have poor depth perception, and have abnormal results from vision screening tests.
