Eye patch choices

Selecting the right eye patch for your child with lazy eye (amblyopia)can help ensure the success of treatment.


However, it is most important that you consult your child’s eye doctor in making this selection since every patch may not be right for every child and some patches may not be right for treating amblyopia.
