According to my recent clinical research at a tertiary referral center in Lahore, Pakistan, dense amblyopia was successfully treated in 195 children and adults between age 13 – 45 years (median 15 years). Their visual acuity improved from 6/60 to 6/6 Snellen’s after 2 months of full-time occlusion therapy and near visual activities for 3-4 hours per day.
It is important to realize that an amblyopic eye is not a dead eye but a lazy, sleepy eye; the brain connections lie dormant because of an inhibitory influence of the good eye. Once this inhibition is removed, the sleepy eye wakes up.
This therapy only works if the patient compliance is excellent.
Only highly motivated and inspired patients will comply to the therapy and will regain good vision,
