Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community for help with your vision issue.

Have you definitely been diagnosed with a lazy eye? Is it the left eye only? Do you have decreased vision in the left eye or both eyes?

Have you been told you suffer with ophthalmoplegia, which is the paralysis or weakness of the eye muscles. It can affect one or more of the six muscles that hold the eye in place and control its movement.

Are you currently under the care of an optomologist?

People affected by ophthalmoplegia may have double or blurred vision. They may also experience an inability to position the eyes in sync. Some may also have a hard time moving both eyes in every direction, and many will have drooping of their eyelids.

Anonymous, you need to be given a diagnosis and then treatment options. If indeed, you do have ophthalmoplegia, it can be treated without surgery.

Treatment for ophthalmoplegia will depend on the type, symptoms, and underlying cause. Adults can be fitted for special glasses, or wear an eye patch to relieve double vision and help achieve normal vision.
