Eye misalignment is the most common cause of amblyopia. When both eyes are not aimed in the same direction, the developing brain "turns off" the image from the misaligned eye to avoid double vision and the child uses only the better, or dominant, eye. If this persists for any period of time, even as short as a few weeks, the eye will not connect properly to the visual cortex of the brain and amblyopia will result.FOR MORE
