What is a lazy eye or amblyopia?

Amblyopia, better known as ‘lazy eye’, can best be described as an eye that has not developed properly. There can be various reasons for this, for example, univocal lens strength or damage inflicted on the eye.
The result is that the sufferer uses the better eye and the other 'lazy eye’ is insufficiently stimulated.
Amblyopia occurs in 2 to 5% of young people and is characterised by reduced or less sharp vision in one of the eyes.
