Amblyopia, or Lazy Eye, is a vision problem that effects the vision in one of the patients eyes. It is not normally detectable by simply looking at the eye. Tests that use interaction bars, such as MassVat, crowding bars, or contour lines help detect Amblyopia. 1-5% of the population is affected by Amblyopia and early detection is key.
