Description
"Amblyopia", also known as lazy eye, is an eye disorder characterizied by an impaired vision in an eye that otherwise appears normal, or out of proportion to associated structural abnormalities of the eye. In amblyopia, visual stimulation either fails to transmit or is poorly transmitted through the optic nerve to the brain for a continuous period of time. It can also occur when the brain ""turns off"" the visual processing of one eye to prevent double-vision, for example in strabismus (crossed-eyes). Detecting the condition in early childhood increases the chance of successful treatment, especially if detected before the age of five. Amblyopia is a developmental problem in the brain, not an intrinsic, organic neurological problem in the eyeball (although organic problems can lead to amblyopia which can continue to exist after the organic problem has resolved by medical intervention). The part of the brain receiving images from the affected eye is not stimulated properly and does not develop to its full visual potential. At the conclusion of the course, the attendee will understand how the brain affects the eyes and visual path. Participants will also be able to list the types of "amblyopiaā€¯.  [CEC:  OPS 1]
