Amblyopia is a developmental disorder of vision in which there is reduced visual function despite full optical correction and the absence of pathology.

Our work in amblyopia has the following aims:

  • To understanding the precise nature of the amblyopic visual deficit
  • To investigate whether subtle structural abnormalities of the eye contribute to the visual deficit in amblyopia
  • To understand the impact of amblyopia on everyday visual function and quality of life measures.
