Amblyopia in Flushing

At The Eye Shop our pediatric optometrist in Flushing handles many aspects of eye care, including near and farsightedness correction, tests for contact lenses and vision, and amblyopia. We tell parents that kids should come in once a year for an exam, and once before they enter school.

Our pediatric optometrist handles eye problems such as strabismus, amblyopia and nearsightedness. Amblyopia is a condition also known as lazy eye. With this condition, vision is not affected because of an eye disease but by a problem where the brain inhibits vision in one eye. It is a neurological ailment that is not uncommon. It is not correctable with glasses or contact lenses, and usually affects only one eye. It causes reduced vision and can be caused by strabismus, or constant turning of the eye. We treat amblyopia by using eyeglasses, eye drops, vision therapy or eye patches to help strengthen the weak eye. It is best to correct while the patient is young for best results. If the patient is older, vision therapy must be employed to help fix the condition.

Our pediatric optometrist in Flushing also treats children for nearsightedness and farsightedness. These conditions are treated with eyeglasses or contact lenses. We speak both English and Korean, and are open Monday through Saturday until 7pm. Ask about our specials, which right now include two complete pairs of single vision lenses and frames for only $99.
