EvilFool,

Amblyopia (commonly called "lazy eye") is a direct contraindication for the LASIK procedure according to FDA guidelines.

No, it won't help the lazy eye ... and it would be foolish to undergo the risk of having the surgical procedure performed on the good eye.

thank you.

i've been looking for a way to help my bad eye, the doc i go to says as far as lenses or contacts go there is no help. It went without treatment too long. Funny thing is they said the same thing when i was 8 y/o. so i guess im stuck with it.

Thanks again

EF

Your eyeball is held straight in place by sets of muscles on each side of the eyeball. Lazy eye occurs when one side's tissues are longer than the other. The correction for lazy eye is to correct the length of the muscles. I'd check with your insurance company and get a few consultations, there's no reason you have to live with it like that.

After the laziness is corrected, then I'd investigate some kind of laser surgery.
