More and more children are being diagnosed with Amblyopia earlier in life due to increased awareness, improved access to eye care, and school vision screening programs. This emphasizes the need for Optometrists as primary eye care practitioners to be equipped with the knowledge and skill set to be able to appropriately diagnose Amblyopia, manage and refer to Ophthalmologists in required cases.
This talk will focus on the clinical tests, interpretation, and systematic approach to assessing Amblyopia. The talk will also provide an outline to sequential management and vision therapy options.
