The lack of development of clear vision, usually in just one eye. Because this condition is not due to an actual physical problem with the eye, glasses or contacts may not fully correct the vision in that eye. Amblyopia is best treated very early in life, as the prognosis for recovery of clear vision decreases with age. Signs to watch for in children include squinting or closing one eye to see, poor depth perception, an eye turning inward or outward, poor vision in one eye, or headaches. The condition is common; approximately two or three out of every 100 people has Amblyopia.

"First I want to thank you.  My eyes pretty much always felt dry and uncomfortable.  The most significant thing you taught me was that I was not blinking completely. The exercises you gave me have been quite useful.  On the days I am faithfully doing the exercises, I have comfortable eyes.  I appreciate being given the Lipiflow treatment on my left eye the day I was screened.  The first week, I noticed a bit of improvement in the left eye.  As the second week passed, there is little difference in the two eyes.  I have switched to preservative free drops, however I do not need to use them very often."

"After developing cataracts on the left eye, I decided to have the cataracts removed.  I was hesitant to allow anyone to work on my eye.  Immediately after the surgery, my vision was somewhat blurry, but cleared within a few days.  The entire experience was not nearly as uncomfortable or frightening as I imagined, and my vision is greatly improved.  The credit I give to Dr. Boland, his expertise and his exceptional patient care, and also to his efficient and friendly staff."
