New Lazy Eye Research Unveiled

Researchers at New York University's Centre for Neural Science have identified a new neurological link that can cause lazy eye syndrome or amblyopia – an eye problem that affects between 1-3% of adults worldwide. The new research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, shows that developmental problems in the brain may directly impact on an individual's vision processing capabilities.

Myopia is thought to affect up to one in every three people.
