About Amblyopia Treatment
Amblyopia is an eye disorder that affects both children and adults of all ages. For many years, eye experts believed that if amblyopia wasn't treated by a certain age, then visual improvement was unlikely. Thanks to modern medical and technological advancements, there are several treatments that can help address amblyopia. If you or your child are struggling with amblyopia, contact Ticho Eye Associates today. Our expert team of ophthalmologists can confirm your diagnosis with a comprehensive eye assessment and discuss all your therapy options. Reach out to any one of our locations in Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, or Munster, IN.

"First I want to thank god for allowing my surgery and recovery to go smoothly, and without any complications. And secondly a huge thank you to Dr. Ticho, a month ago I was pretty much blind in both my eyes due to cataracts. Dr. Ticho answered all of my questions and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout my entire experience. I went in confident that he was more than capable of performing my surgery due to his constant reassurance and extensive explanation of what to expect. I am forever grateful to him and his stuff, whom were also very kind. They reached out to me both times after my surgery to see how I was doing and I am thankful. I would highly recommend Dr. Ticho if you’re looking for a physician to help with your optical needs."- T.F. / Facebook / Mar 29, 2021

Types of Treatments
The most common forms of treating amblyopia include prescription eyeglasses and patching. These treatments help increase visual acuity in both eyes but are typically more effective in mild cases. We have discovered that by incorporating vision therapy in combination with these traditional methods, patients are more likely to experience improvement. Vision therapy works by training the brain to use both eyes in order to improve binocular vision. At Ticho Eye Associates, our skilled team of ophthalmologists will create a custom treatment plan that is designed to address your unique needs and vision concerns.
