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.

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.
