Question

 

Hi,

Is an eye with weak nerve with lazy eye the same thing?

thanks

 

 

 

Answer

 

Thanks for your question

lazy eye is a functional problem while optic nerve disease is a pathological problem that can't be treated. Lazy eye or amblyopia can be treated if you treat the cause of it such as cataract or refractive errors or vitreous opacity while optic nerve atrophy or diseases can't be treated.
