In the eye or eyes of a person with a lazy eye, the eye is observed does not move with the other. For example, if you have a lazy eye and try to look right, one eye may look right, while the other remains of the eye in the same position. So, get the name of "lazy eye."

But doctors and surgeons working in the field of ophthalmology know that these people with eyes that have a problem of "lazy eye" are not lazy at all.

In fact, these eyes have more connective muscle tissues than the regular eye. This means that these muscles have to work hard with each other to move in coordination with each other.

Typically, an eye has a complete set of muscles that help the eye movement that is how they need to move. But with a person with a lazy eye, they have too many muscles in their eyes. These extra muscles make quite difficult for the person to move their eyes in coordination with each other.

So there are some ways to deal with people who have a lazy eye. Often, those with lazy eyes should wear a patch over the good eye.

Wearing a patch over the good eye will lazy eye to develop its strength over time. This means that one eye, lazy eye, has to do all the work to see. Therefore, when the eye patch comes off, patients generally see that the eyes move in unison with each other.
